Thanks for the info, Skip.
I am aware of the MMSN. They run noon until around 10 PM ET. I check in with some regularity.
14.300 is also home of INTERCON (the old Intercontinental Traffic Net). They run 8 AM - noon ET. I check into that one too.
BTW: I checked into INTERCON yesterday morning with my uBITX. Operating "remote" from a hunting camp in the middle of a wilderness area. (West Virginia Wildlife Management Area). Operating battery-solar into an 84 foot longwire. Net OP was W5WAZ near Houston, TX. Also worked the Battleship New Jersey with the uBITX & same setup yesterday morning.
Amazing little radios.
I will be listening on 7.277 - just can't do it today.

Just to let you know 14.300 is the Maritime Mobile net frequency for both coasts. They are in operation most of the day with net controllers throughout the country. It’s not the best choice for operation and meeting place for uBITX users but could be used to possibly get a signal report.
