Lake Radio Communications

Hi All,

It is spring time again !

We have started the Great Lakes Marine Mobile Net again on weekend mornings at 08:30 Eastern. Please tune in on Saturday and Sunday morning.

The HF frequency is 7.268 MHz LSB
VHF 2M in the Chicagoland area is 146.760 MHz FM, PL 107.2
Echolink KC9SGV-L node number 528436
IRLP Great Lakes Reflector, node number 8053.

This year we will have some exciting additional features to play with during the nets.
We are adding a brand new HF Remote server here in the shack.
Several other HF Remote servers are available to us around the Great Lakes this time around.
Note: At least a General Ham Radio licence is required for this.

Also new is the use of the Echolink APP for Iphone and Android phones from your boat.
With this APP you will be able to contact the net control officers directly in their shacks on Echolink/IRLP.
The range for 3G and 4G on the Lakes is about 3 to 5 miles offshore by testing.
Note: At least a Technician Ham licence is required for this.

The Skype APP for Iphone and Android will also come in handy this year.
You can contact KC9SGV Great Lakes Marine Mobile Net on Skype directly in the shack.
Note: No licence is required for a Skype connection to us.

All information will be on our website at GLMMNet HF Remote Station | Great Lakes Marine Mobile Net/Great Lakes MM Net

Best 73,
