The inaugural Amateur Radio RVers Net on the QuadNet Array (DMR, DStar, and Fusion simultaneously) is now history. We had 7 hams in the conversation this evening. We will be on the air again next Sunday evening at 10:00pm ET. The topic will be about RV ham radio installations in their RVs and tow vehicles with specific mentioning of running power to the radios, coax selection, type of radio, and type of antenna. We will also address any RFI RVers have experienced. 73 and we hope to hear you on next week's net. Thanks to the admins of the QuadNet Array for letting us use their system. N8GU

Best wishes in your search for a RV. This is a great place to connect with fellow hams and learn some tips in many fields. If you have questions, ask and you will receive responses.

Samuel Jones, AB9GH,

My first time here on the board. Did you fix the problem?
I just finished installing a new awning fabric about a week ago and found it very educational.

Hi Calvin, I heard a couple of voices that I recognized but could not hear enough to understand what they were saying. I don't know if there was an active NCS or not. Band conditions here on the east shore of Lake Michigan were terrible.
