Upcoming Events

UPDATES

K9EQ is relocating. Pulling up stakes and moving from Minnesota to California. During this transition the HamOperator.com will continue to operate normally since it is hosted on a server in Philadelphia. The YSF server will also continue to operate (it’s in New York), however the MNwis bridge between WiRES-X and YSF may not be operating. The transition period will be from 20 November through 15 December.

A PDF/Print option has been added to HamOperator pages to make it easier to save a post or a page on your computer. Look for the PDF and printer icons in the upper-right corner of the page.

MNWis is now using #21,493 for both the YSF reflector “US MNWIS    RDNT” and the WiRES-X room. The old YSF reflector at 37,624 is no longer in use. FCS 003-23 is still available for hotspot chatting, but is not linked to the YSF or WiRES-X reflectors. It may be linked during nets, but this is not guaranteed.

A note on problems using YSF Reflectors that bridge to WiRES-X Rooms.

Other Stuff

Please refer to the BARS/W0MDT Mission Statement. This mission statement applies to all activities including the Fusion Net, and Hams in the Park. We humbly suggest that other organizations also establish their mission statement.
