FCARC SSTV Net - September 10

The FCARC supports a monthly net to help interested hams learn about & practice Slow Scan TV (SSTV) on 2 meters. You are invited to join. FCARC membership is not necessary. This is a semi-formal, directed net. We meet at 6 pm using both FM voice & SSTV transmissions on 145.330 MHz, Tone 100. All SSTV transmissions are in Martin 2.

I will begin sending a few SSTV pictures prior to the net beginning at 5:45 pm for your enjoyment, and then I'll call for checkins at 6 pm.
