Welcome to the
UN-Official webpage of the Amateur Radio Club of Augusta's
Weekly UHF Net held every Saturday night at 9:00PM on 444.95
MHz +5MHz Offset with a PL Tone of 71.9Hz.
Why unofficial? The ARCA is in NO way responsible for
the content on this website and while I try to be sure that
the information that I have posted here is both accurate and
current, the best source of official information will always
website! I have placed their logo at the top of the
page and have linked it to their website because the UHF Net
is on their repeater, under their rules and guidelines.
I am very new to the
Amateur Radio hobby myself but I am really trying to learn
all that I can in order to do this well. I had no idea
that the capabilities of Amateur Radio were so diverse.
I thought the extent of the hobby was some guy sitting in
his hamshack with a microphone or CW key and a set of
headphones hoping that the atmospherics would be just right
for him to get a weather report from Belgium - BOY was I
WRONG! I had no idea that RTTY, Data, Messaging, SSTV, DSTAR
and so many other things could be done by ordinary HAMs!
I am learning and I know I have so much more to learn.
I invite EVERYONE to
join in on the net. Also those who have organizations
that they work with that could always use the services of a
few good amateur operators and want to give a presentation
of sorts about your organization, I hope you will email me
firstname.lastname@example.org and I would love to have you
tell everyone how they can get involved. Also anyone
who has any sort of expertise in any area of the hobby, or
has amateur equipment for sale - or just something on your
mind that relates to Amateur Radio or public service, please
drop in! A hobby is all about FUN!
