Have You Used the ON4KST.com Ham Chat?

12:30pm Thur.

I’m in the middle of making multiple posts today.  Want to make separate posts about different nets and activity periods that are alive and well in the Midwest/Great Lakes.

Honestly, to stay on top of all this activity, a VHF’er should be logged into that ON4KST.com ham chat. Specifically talking about the “IARU Region 2 Chat for 144-432 MHz”  (There are many other useful chat “rooms” for different ham bands at ON4KST.com, but kc9bqa.com focuses on the SSB/CW side of VHF/UHF.)

This morning I logged in and saw that after 8.5 years, there are now 6600+ VHF’ers who have registered for this free and no-BS resource.   Of course, the vast majority lurk, and you are free to simply observe, as well.
The chat is very active every morning and most evenings, too.  Many active nets and activity periods in different parts of the country announce their presence via the chat.  There are also VHF’ers looking around for other stations to make contact with.   Plus hams just talking antennas, radios, band conditions, the whole 9 yards.   This is such a valuable tool to help connect VHF’ers who might not otherwise know what’s going on.
