Same time, Different place..
At our December In-Person meeting the SFM ARC voted unanimously to move our on-air net
meetings to 80 meters (3.545 MHz) into the winter months and through Spring. This move was
made in consideration for those that live at greater distances. An evaluation of band condition
and signal reports will be made again in the late spring time. At that time the W6SFM will decide
if this is going to be a permanent change or seasonal only.
