Hi All,

The GLMMNet will be active on the annual Field Day (June 25 and 26),

not so much for the competition, but more for advertising the Net.

Note: You will need a Ham Radio license for this. (Very easy to get

nowadays - no more Morse code required, and just a short multiple

choice exam.)

Here is how we can all be involved:

1. All members can operate Field Day from their boats, or from the

dock, or whatever.

2. Our normal net sessions will still be taking place, without the

Internet content.

However, it might be difficult to find clear frequencies to do


3. Weather briefings can be acquired via Winmor on HF.

4. All net members can check in to other CQ calls as “Great Lakes

Marine Mobile Net – Your callsign”. (Yep, you can act as Net Control

Officer for the day. You have our permission !)

5. We are working on GLMMNet QSL Cards. These will be send out after

you emailed us your log for Field Day as Great Lakes Marine Mobile

Net NCS.

6. Internet Remote Base transmissions can be done as a demonstration

of capability....I know, You will probably need long distance WiFi.

(Hey it is RF, after all.)

7. We certainly can use the RF side of Echolink and IRLP in creative

ways to talk to other hams. Just link to Echolink– or IRLP - enabled

repeaters or nodes. Just identify as “Great Lakes Marine Mobile Net,

operated by <Your Callsign> via Echolink or IRLP.”

8. Direct VHF/UHF transmissions to local repeaters around the marina.

Use your HT or boat base station.

9. All stations please keep a listening watch on our normal HF

frequencies when not operating per se. These are : Day time – 7.263


7.268 MHz (depending on QRM.)

Night time – 3.935 MHz

10. Have fun, have a blast, and keep the Great Lakes Marine Mobile

Net name high and well advertised !

Any further operating suggestions would be highly appreciated.

Best 73,

Bernie Dekok
