You can find yours truly, Daryl Stout, WX4QZ, on this net today.
A list of all the nets that I can be found on during the week is
-- look for the link
that notes "Nets Where WX4QZ is Net Control".
Nets on The QuadNet Array utilize the modes of D-Star, DMR, WIRES, and
System Fusion, together on one site. Go to https://www.openquad.net
for details, and connection options.
All times are in the US Time Zones. I normally start early checkins
30 minutes prior to the start of the net. If I am unable to make it,
due to weather, health, internet, or other issues, I will try to get a
backup Net Control.
Note that for nets where I'm "checkin only", these are with weather,
health, internet, and schedule permitting...and these are not guaranteed.
Net Name: Quarter Century Wireless Association (QCWA) Net.
Meets On: The QuadNet Array
Net Control: Daryl Stout, WX4QZ
Alternate Net Control: Mike Sturm, KA2E
Net Time: 5pm Eastern, 4pm Central, 3pm Mountain, 2pm Pacific
Comments: You do not have to be a member of the QCWA to check into
the net. However, if you were first licensed as an amateur radio
operator, anytime in the years 1995 (as of 2020) or earlier, and are
currently licensed, you can join the organization. Go to www.qcwa.org
for more details. The main requirement to checkin is being a licensed
amateur radio operator, with privileges to transmit on D-Star, DMR,
WIRES, System Fusion, or D-Rats.
On checkins, please advise if you are "short time". If that's the case,
once ackowledged, you can secure your station at your leisure. Methods
to checkin are as follows:
1) On the QuadNet Array, via D-Star, DMR, WIRES, or Fusion. Go to https://openquad.net
for connection options.
2) Via the IM Utility with Netlogger (netlogger.org).
3) On the St. Tammany Ratflector (sttammany.ratflector.com) on D-Rats.
Thanks to Glen Strecker, KG5CEN, for the use of the ratflector.
4) Via the QCWA Facebook Page.
5) Via email to either firstname.lastname@example.org
Checkin methods 3, 4, and 5, will automatically be noted as "short time".
Net Name: Young Operators Digital Voice Net
Meets On: The QuadNet Array
Net Control: Danielle Eddington, KE8JNU
Net Time: 7pm Eastern, 6pm Central, 5pm Mountain, 4pm Pacific
Comments: Danielle earned her Technician License just before Hamvention
in 2009...then a month after Hamvention, upgraded to General, then to
Amateur Extra a month later...all when she was only 9 years old!! Her
parents, Dan, N8YMD, and Cindy, KE8JNT, are very supportive of their
daughter. The net encourages young people to checkin...either as a
licensed ham radio operator, or as third party traffic.
Note: This is an optional net checkin for WX4QZ.
Net Name: KB0ZSG International D-Star Net
Meets On: Reflector 1C
Net Control: Steven Reiners, KC9SIO
Backup Net Control: Daryl Stout, WX4QZ
Net Time: 8pm Eastern, 7pm Central, 6pm Mountain, 5pm Pacific
Comments: The net was originally started by the late Connie Ballantyne,
KB0ZSG (SK), who lost her battle with breast cancer in early 2020.
Steven Reiners, KC9SIO, has taken over the net in her memory, to
keep the legacy alive of "The Queen Of D-Star". Connie was Net Control
for the net for several years before becoming ill. I understand she had
the best hugs and the best cookies. She is sorely missed.
The net can last over 5 hours, and have well over 100 checkins, from
the US, Canada, and around the world.
Note: The net may CHANGE to a different reflector sometime soon.
Updates will be posted as soon as possible.
