The DFMA is an amateur radio club centered in Durham, NC, with members from all over the Research Triangle Area. We support an excellent set of repeaters but members engage in all aspects of ham radio. We meet monthly on the first Tuesday of the month at Bullock's Bar-B-Cue at 6pm for dinner with a program beginning at 7pm. The meetings are open to all with an interest in Ham Radio.

November 3 Program: DFMA Meeting on the Air

Until outbreak conditions improve, the DFMA will not be having in-person meetings. As we did in October, instead of our usual monthly meeting at Bullock's, we'll have a special net. The net will be at 7pm on November 3rd, our usual meeting time, on the linked 145.45- and 147.225+ repeaters (both have a PL tone of 82.5). You can also check-in over the Internet via Echolink/SVXLink to the WR4AGC-R node. The format of the net will be check-ins (in place of our usual introductions), officer reports and a rag chew round table discussion.
