On Air Nets and Meetings

On the Air Nets

On the FIRST Tuesday of each month we have an on the air net on the Colorado Repeater Association's 147.225 MHz machine in Denver. This net starts at 8:00 PM.

Here is the script used to call the EOSS net.

For historical interest, I transcribed the original net script from a printout of an email from Jack Crabtree the apparent original author of the script. The email was from the COMM-POST BBS back on 3/22/92.

Edge of Space Sciences holds a monthly face to face meeting. Meeting locations change each month. See the schedule below to find the location for the meeting you wish to attend.

Meetings start at 7 PM unless a specific exception is posted here and on the location directions page.

People often arrive 30 minutes before the meeting start time to socialize a bit before we get down to business.

It is also common for folks to pre-arrange an impromptu dinner at a restaurant near the meeting location. These dinners usually start around 90 minutes in advance of the meeting (17:30 Local) Information about this location is shared on the EOSS email lists the day of or perhaps the day before the meeting.

There are usually folks on repeaters that can offer talk in assistance and directions to the meeting. However, this is NOT a formal arrangement and thus you may find that no one is listening on occasion. That's why we offer the Meeting Location Information pages below. They are your best guide and driving directions to the various meeting locations. However... We generally hang out on one of 4 repeaters.

If we are meeting in the south end of the Denver Metro area talk in is handled on the Denver Radio League's  146.880 MHz or 146.640 MHz repeaters. No tones are required on these machines.

If we are meeting in the north end of the Metro area up in Longmont we usually use the Colorado Repeater Association's 147.225 MHz and 145.460 MHz repeaters. Both machines REQUIRE a 107.2 Hz tone. "225" is a wide area machine and good for the trip up or down I-25. If you are coming from the foothills, 145.460 is the better machine. It is located in the Boulder area. Both of these repeaters are linked to each other.

The location of the meeting will be alternating between a location in South Denver Metro and Intrado in Longmont. Check this page for the schedule. Also check the Meeting Location information pages for directions to the locations and also for special instruction on how to gain access into the buildings.
