Friends Keeping In Touch via Amateur Radio and RVs

The RV Radio Network is an ARRL affiliated association of RV enthusiasts who also share an interest in Amateur Radio. Here you will find information about rallies, hamfests, radio nets, and other activities of interest to the members of our club. We invite all Amateur Radio Operators with an appropriate FCC license to participate in the RVRN 40m net on about 7264 KHz at 6:30 PM Central Time Sunday through Friday, and in our Multi-mode EchoLink net each Thursday at 8:00 PM Central Time on the *SELINK* node. Our Net Control Operators KA2HPG, AI1N, K5WWT, K5TGS, W8TJT, and W4QMT welcome you. We are always looking for Alternate NCOs. If you would like to be an alternate NCO contact our Communications Manager Fred, KA2HPG.

Hello Mike - K8ZRH,

While we do not have a Fusion Net, we do have multi-mode access including Fusion to our weekly EchoLink net each Thursday evening.. Look for the EchoLInk Net information on the website.

I occasionally find folks on the RVing Hams Brandmeister DMR Talk Group.

Is there a Fusion Net for the RV Radio Network?
Or, better yet, a dedicated Fusion room that RV amateurs could access while on the road as our own hang-out spot?

Susan (KD0YLR) and I are currently wintering in Arizona (Tucson area) and will be attending Quartzfest 2022.

For anyone on DMR, we monitor the Ham RV Traveler talkgroup 31652, which is a great resource when traveling in your RV.

QuartzFest is definitely on my bucket list - but not this year! However I hope to be at the Orlando HamCation in February.

FCC to Require Email Addresses on Applications

Amateur radio licensees and candidates will have to provide the FCC with an email address on applications, effective sometime in mid-2021. If no email address is included, the FCC may dismiss the application as defective.     .......
Under new Section 97.23, each license will have to show the grantee's correct name, mailing address, and email address. "The email address must be an address where the grantee can receive electronic correspondence......Revocation of the station license or suspension of the operator license may result when correspondence from the FCC is returned as undeliverable because the grantee failed to provide the correct email address."
