We are a group of amateur radio operators getting together to share
experience, strength and hope in appreciation of the AA program. (See
book LIVING SOBER, page 81 or 82, depending on edition, for
reference to telephone and ham radio as meeting substitutes.)
We have two meetings every day, one on HF Radio, the other on QSOnet.
NOTE: Due to the lack of an HF Net Coordinator and Daily HF Net Control Stations The HF Net portion is on hold for now.
We have a Facebook page to contact members and set up schedules on the air and just to keep in touch. To join send email to [email protected] or [email protected] and I will add you to the HAAM Group/Friends of Bill W Facebook page.
11:30 A.M. Eastern Local Time (8:30 A.M. Pacific Local Time)
Frequency - 21.350 QSOnet dial
Some of us are in
restricted circumstances and use QSOnet because we are unable to
use HF radio, others find the time more convenient, while one joins us
regularly from Europe. Please Note: All frequencies on QSOnet are
available for any class of license including tech. Information is
available from www.qsonet.com
on this VOIP internet service for hams.
You may read here the History of the HAAM Group as taken from various issues of GRAPEVINE.
Gary, W0SDI, one of the Group's NC's, wrote a nice article HAAM Radio Continues to Carry Fellowship about the HAAM Radio Group recently (Click the link for the PDF file) .
Box 459 from AA Central
posted an article in 1992 entitled: "HAAM Radio Carries Fellowship and Warmth 'Over
the AAirwaves' ". Retrieve the article in PDF by clicking this

Ben L's (W7FNE, SK) story "Lonely Business" appeared in the May issue of 1970 of Grapevine. It harks back to the original days of this net which became a source of substitute meetings for ship's radio operators, shut-ins, and others inaccessible to regular meetings. Since then, the tradition has carried on.
