Thanks for the offer, Doug. We’ve been around for a long time (20 to 30 years) but I guess we haven’t “tooted our horn” often enough.

I never knew there was a net.
I'll do my best to help it 'stay alive'.

After much deliberation we have decided to make the following change in the
AMSAT 20 Meter Net format:
"The AMSAT 20 Meter Net will be changing format effective 9 November 2014.
It will start with check-ins at 1900 UTC on 14.282 MHz and proceed with
Satellite Q&A and other topics. The weekly AMSAT Bulletin Titles will be
read and an offer will be made to read or discuss specific bulletins by
request. We encourage check-ins from AMSAT Officers, BOD Members, Operators
that are very active on the Satellites, and of course Operators that are new
to the Satellites and/or Ham Radio. The activity will generally be over by
2000 UTC. We realize that not everyone has 20 Meter capability but we need
more activity to continue running this net. Dust off your HF Gear, put up a
20 Meter Dipole, and join us or let the net die a natural death."
We will be monitoring the response to this change before making further
