80m Twitter Ham Net LESS Than 24HRs
Lots of interest has been shown so far on Twitter regarding the 1st ever 80m Twitter Ham Net, which will be held tomorrow (Wednesday 13th January) at 20.00 UTC.
Since the idea was suggested there has been a lot of Hams tweeting messages and leaving comments confirming that they will be by their Ham Radio Stations and at the same time be on Twitter tomorrow night. I can’t believe how well you have all responded from as far as The USA, to Czech Republic and the UK alike, there is a lot of enthusiastic Tweeting Hams out there!

The easiest way to join in is by getting on Twitter, create an account and either follow somebody or just search for other Hams to follow such as myself, example @2E0HTS. Once you find us all, you will easily see what were up to and which Hams are operating as well as any SWLs. All are welcome. :-)

Useful info for Twitter Ham Net Ops

- All updates can easily be searched for by using the trending topic #TWNET

- Tomorrow Nights NET - 80M. Actual Frequency will be posted at 19.55 UTC. This can be found by searching for #TWNET

Hopefully we shall have lots of fun and create some activity on 80M. If successful we could try different Bands at different Times, allowing Hams from all over the world a chance to mix Ham Radio and a bit of Internet Tweeting together to make some great QSOs.
It should be a good Net, I and many others are getting excited with less than 24 hours before the Twitter Ham Net takes to the Air for the very first time. We all Hope to hear you and be heard on the Twitter Ham 80m Net tomorrow at 20.00 UTC. It should be a great turnout, see you there!
Thank You to Everyone who is involved so far, keep up the great enthusiasm Tweeple! ;-)
