Simplex Net

The last Sunday of every month is a simplex net conducted on 146.580. If you can hear a station that net control cannot, please provide your callsign to indicate you have a relay. If you cannot hear net control whatsoever, please wait a few minutes and then give your callsign so someone can relay for you.
