Radio Scouting Net on Echolink

This month we'll be operating the USA Radio Scouting Net on Echolink, conference *JOTA-365* which is node 480809.

It's at 10 PM Central, Thursday, August 11 (which is also 0300 UTC Friday, August 12). Chris Overbey, WA5DM, continues as host.

While we had a few check ins on 40 meters last month, propagation was not our friend. Echolink should be a great way to make this happen. The World Scout Net meets on this same conference node on the first Saturday of each month at 2200 UTC.

If you're not familiar with Echolink, you can find out more at including downloading the software. There are also apps for Android, iPhone, and iPad.

Looking forward to everyone checking in on the net.
