Speaking of the Knobby Knee Net...

On Saturday, September 30 the Knobby Knee Net will move from our normal Mingus repeater to our Porcupine Mountain repeater. For this one day the net will be at:
147.100 MHz with a standard + offset and 131.8 Hz PL tone.
This is a totally solar powered facility so let's give it a good workout.
For more information see the Repeaters page and the Nets page.

Unfortunately EchoLink and Allstar are not available on the Porcupine repeater.
