Tonight's District nets starting at 1930 hours will use the 2-meter W6TRW repeater cross-linked with the 440 K6RH Rolling Hills repeater, our 2-meter TAC-1 simplex frequency, 220 simplex frequency (voice and NBEMS), the 440 K6CPT-4a repeater, and concluding with another NBEMS message on 2-meter TAC-1 simplex. All DCS members and members of the South Bay's city-affiliated disaster amateur radio groups are encouraged to check in as well as relay for any stations net control cannot hear.

We hope you can operate in ARRL Field Day this weekend from your home or other safe location. Field Day is mostly a nationwide demonstration of amateur radio operation using emergency power from 1100 hours Saturday to 1100 hours Sunday. Contacts may be made on 6-meters, 2-meters, 220, and 440 simplex frequencies (no repeaters) in addition to the usual HF bands (80, 40, 20, 15, and 10-meters.) For complete Field Day rules see the ARRL website at or feel free to ask us. If you submit your Field Day log to ARRL for combining your score with fellow club members be sure everyone spells the club's name exactly the same.

We still need volunteers to help operate portions of our weekly Districts nets from home stations for several more months and have scripts that make net operation easier. Our combined coverage from W6TRW 2m and/or K6RH 440 repeaters enables many without good simplex coverage to handle our main net. Contact me at [email protected] with any Monday when you can help.

Since late March we have operated several portions of each week's District net from the Lomita Sheriff Station DCS room using a single operator. Last Monday night we moved beyond that when Staff 50 and I jointly operated in the LMT DCS room. Additionally we believe the NBEMS transmit issues intermittently experienced at Lomita in previous weeks' nets have now been identified and resolved.
