Ladies Night Net

The Base Station

Are you a YL or XYL looking for net just for you? Look no further! The W8IZC repeater has given us a time slot the 1st Thursday of every month at 8PM on the frequency 146.910. This is an open net for all licensed female amateurs or under 18 licensed operators. I also call it the “henhouse net” because we ladies can get on the air, but generally not for very long. This net is casual, fun, with a check-in and chat format.

To help some of us shy, quiet, mic fright folks, I thought I would come up with a list of ragchew topics to get us talking. Unless we want to be super cliché and debate the best laundry detergents and peanut butter brands. Oh, who am I kidding…I would be totally down for that too!
