Matthew 11:28-30

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.


The Amateur Radio Missionary Service (ARMS) is a worldwide group of Christian Amateur Radio operators who meet on the air, to share Scripture and prayer concerns, to assist missionaries, and to present a positive witness for Christ on the amateur bands. It was founded in 1957.  One of the early functions of ARMS was to provide phone patch communication between missionaries and their families and friends. With the advent of the Internet, that function has basically disappeared and we have become a group of hams joining ARMS for fellowship on the air.


Join us Monday through Saturday at 1400Z DST and 1500Z CST on 14.3075 MHZ. Visit our, Nets & Sections page for full details. This is a time to share what is happening in your life, catch up with others and meet new friends. Prayer requests are welcome and if you like you can share a Scripture Verse during your turn for comments.


USE OF “99”

Occasionally someone asks about the use of “99” at the end of a QSO. It was chosen in 1957 by a member of the old Missionary Engineering Net as a Christian “Good-bye.” “Good-bye is a contraction of “God be with you.” So, “99” means “God be with you till we meet again.” It also means “God bless you and all that you are doing in His service.” It was the latter meaning that the originator had particularly in mind.
