Monthly Meetings

The General Membership Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month (except December) at 7 PM. All members, guests and visitors are welcome to attend. At each meeting we spend a little time up front discussing club business followed by the program.

Our General Membership meeting will be held at the IHop located at 5749 Stetson Hills Boulevard in Colorado Springs. This on Stetson Hills just west of Powers Boulevard.

Here is a map to help you find it.

On the Air

The PPRAA Net meets every Thursday at 1900 hrs local time on 28.390MHz. It’s an informal rag chew and radio adjusting forum. We meet on 28.390 USB at 7 PM. After hearing from all that check-in, we then go to other frequencies and modes.
This gets the multi-mode rigs on the air and we find out what they can do. Frequencies are 50.125 USB, 52.525 FM, 144.220 USB, 446.00 FM, 432.100 USB. These last will be with vertical antennas. If Techs check in on SSB then we will come back to SSB after each mode change so the Techs can listen to AM/FM and report what they heard. It’s a good pportunity to learn how to adjust your rig for other modes besides SSB. Doc, W0MCT will normally be the net control.
