Pa NBEMS Net panbems@groups.io

Supporting the Pa NBEMS net for Pennsylvania and surrounding states.  This is an open net for the purpose of training and practicing running and participating in similar nets.  NBEMS stands for Narrow Band Emergency Messaging System and is used primarily for emergency communications and passing traffic on the Amateur Radio frequencies.  The primarily software used for NBEMS is Fldigi.  All Amateur Radio operators are invited to subscribe to this group and to participate in the Pa NBEMS Net.  Any questions or comments may be sent to ny3j at arrl.net

This net meets every Sunday at 0730 Hrs on a vfo dial frequency of  3583.0 kHz.

We moved the net to  0800 hr  from the old net on fickle forty meters at  1100 hr local time.
By moving the net to 80m and moving the net to an earlier hour, we have eliminated the "fickle forty meters" skip zone of propagation  (the famous 100 mile donut hole)

The net control operators are
Ron NY3J  Bensalem, Barry K3EUI West Chester
We are still looking for additional net control operators from Central or Western Pa

The net usually has checkins from  Pa, NY, NJ, CT, MA, VA  and sometimes when the band is still open, from North Carolina and Ohio and Canada.
We practice sending FLMSG and FLAMP messages including casual comments, announcements, and samples of EMCOM messages including weather reports and daily shelter reports.

Here's a list of nets. Mark your calendars.

Pa NBEMS  Sundays at 0730 hr on 3583 kHz
