SBE HF Hamnet and SBE UHF/VHF Hamnet, SBE’s Chapter 73, “Chapter of the Air”

Hamnet, the SBE’s “Chapter of the Air,” was developed more than 25 years ago for those ham operator-members who are not in close proximity to a local SBE chapter. It gives members a monthly chance to get caught up on up-to-date SBE information and discuss technical broadcast topics.

The HF Hamnet “Chapter of the Air” takes place on the second Sunday of every month at 0000 GMT. Hal Hostetler, WA7BGX, serves as Net Control. The published frequency is 14.205 MHz. Occasionally, that frequency is busy and you may need to move up (no more than 10 kHz) to find the SBE meeting.

In addition to the HF “Chapter of the Air”, the SBE UHF/VHF Hamnet is available Monday evenings at 9:00 p.m. ET, 6:00 p.m. PT. The HAMnet ius available worldwide via Echolink Node KD0WHB-L, node 985839 (available via computer and radio), and Allstar node 46079. The SBE UHF/VHF Hamnet is based in Denver on 446.925, pl 141.3, and 448.975, pl 123.0.

This monthly, virtual program for member engineers, technicians and other broadcast professionals, provides information about the SBE or broadcast technology. It is not intended to replace a local chapter meeting, but SBE members who do not have a chapter near them, or have conflicts that prevent them from attending chapter meetings can view the SBE WEBxtra to stay involved.
