LATE NEWS




Happy Birthday Moose & Squirrel!  This makes two.

It's hard to believe another year has slipped by.  Join us on Saturday 10 NOV, at noon, on 5357 USB to celebrate.

The Moose and Squirrel Cold-War Clandestine and Long-Range-Reconnaissance-Patrol Net is now more than two years old.  The initial activation of the net was 14 October 2010, and one of the early landmarks was the Verteran's Day operation on 11 November 2010.  So we're counting Veteran's Day as the net's official birthday.

VIDEO of list year's celebration..

Boris and Natasha are still out there plotting against Rocket J. Squrrel and Bullwinkle T. Moose. Their plan is doomed because one spavined Cold Warrior is still on his post and has planted himself firmly in their way, dutifully reporting his findings to Moose and Squirrel net.

It should also be duly noted that the uniform he is clad in was issued to him four decades ago and still fits

The sudden loss of communications was pretty startling.  You had to be there to appreciate this.

Moose and Squirrel Net Birthday Party
Noon EST, Saturday, 12 November 2011 - 5371.5 KHz USB

The Moose and Squirrel Cold-War Clandestine and Long-Range-Reconnaissance -Patrol Net is now more than a year old.  The initial activation of the net was 14 October 2010, and one of the early landmarks was the Verteran's Day operation on 11 November 2010.  So we're going to count Veteran's Day as the nets official birthday.

The on-the-air party was a lot of fun.  Here's some VIDEO form Yuki, KD2AGJ (now KW2K).

M&S QSY - 30 AUG 2011


Effective
Tuesday, 30 AUG 2011, the primary frequency for The Moose and Squirrel Cold-War Clandestine and Long-Range-Reconnaissance-Patrol Net will change to 5371.5 KHz (Channel 4).  We're making this change in order to vacate 5403.5 KHz (Channel 5) which is the designated 60-meter
calling frequency.  This change is feasible because the long standing QRM problem on Channel 4 has been resolved.




First Saturday C/LRRP - 4 DEC 2010.
We're declaring this a success, and we'll continue Saturday operations.  We managed to blow the cobwebs off a bunch of interesting radios.

  • The net has been meeting regularly on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12:00 Eastern time on 5.4035 since 14 Oct.




  • The initial activation of the C-LRRP Net took place on 14 Oct 2010 on 5403.5 KHz.  We had eight checkins covering the region from Dover, DE to Bow, NH.  Conditions were good, with virtually all stations were able to work each other.  Based on this initial success, we have resolved to continue net operations every Tuesday and Thursday.  It was also suggest that all available stations check this frequency for casual contacts on any day at noon.  



Motivation:  To get our military and paramilitary radios on the air within the NE US region on a regular basis.

Time:  Tuesdays and Thursdays, 12:00 Eastern Time

Frequencies:  3996, 5403.5(alt 5371.5), 7296 as needed.
