Friends Keeping In Touch via Amateur Radio and RVs

The RV Radio Network is an ARRL affiliated association of RV enthusiasts who also share an interest in Amateur Radio. Here you will find information about rallies, hamfests, radio nets, and other activities of interest to the members of our club. We invite all Amateur Radio Operators with an appropriate FCC license to participate in the RVRN 40m net on about 7264 KHz at 6:00 PM Central Time Sunday through Friday, and in our EchoLink net each Thursday at 8:00 PM Central Time on the *SELINK* Conference Node. Our Net Control Operators KA2HPG, KJ4TD, AI1N, K5WWT, K5TGS, W8TJT, and W4QMT welcome you. We are always looking for Alternate NCOs.

FCC to Require Email Addresses on Applications
12/2/2020

Amateur radio licensees and candidates will have to provide the FCC with an email address on applications, effective sometime in mid-2021. If no email address is included, the FCC may dismiss the application as defective..........

Revocation of the station license or suspension of the operator license may result when correspondence from the FCC is returned as undeliverable because the grantee failed to provide the correct email address."
Ref: ARRL News


Note: To add or edit your email address to your FCC information log into the ULS License Manager at https://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsEntry/licManager/login.jsp, select the appropriate license. In the right hand column there is a "Work on this License" box with options to make changes.

Give us your ideas on Rallies, Nets, the website, or ask questions about whatever is on your mind.

All suggestions are delivered to the
Advisory Board for review.
