The Greater Cincinnati ARA 1936 net will hold its Annual AM night on
Thursday, December 26, 2013.
The net operates on weekly on 1936 kHz and is normally conducted each
Thursday at 9PM EST/8PM CST/0200 GMT in SSB mode, but on the last
Thursday of the year the net is conducted entirely on AM.
The official start time is 9PM EST, however on AM night a pre-list of
check-in's will be taken starting at 6PM EST. Participation in the
pre-check-ins is encouraged so that the AM operation is well established
on the frequency by official net time. At the close of the official net,
the AM activity usually continues well into the wee hours in roundtable
The frequency of 1936 kHz was chosen because the net, founded in the
year 1936 following the use of 160m for emergency communication during
the flood of that year, was revitalised in 1986 on the 50th anniversary
of the GCARA, and is one of the oldest nets in the country. AM rigs of
every vintage and description are welcome.
Please join us December 26th for some "gud ole" 160 meter Amplitude
