To All Radio Amateurs
Maryland-DC Section HF Hospital Net

Time for the monthly MDC Section HF Hospital Net (HFHN)
Join us 15 minutes early to help hold the frequency to 1900
Start time is 1900L on 3820kHz , Wednesday July 21, 2021
If the frequency gets a little crowded, look for us ‘down or up stream’ about 5kHz.
The MDC Section HF Hospital Net is held on the Wednesday following  the third Monday of every month.

NCS is Jeff KB3SPH, QTH Charles County, Maryland
Next Hospital Net –  August 18, 2021. NCS is Jim KD3JA, Prince Georges, County

The purpose of the Net is two fold: To find out who we can touch during an actual disaster when local communications have failed.  Secondly, to hold the frequency for the MD Emergency Phone Net should the need arise.

You do not have to reside in the MDC Section nor associated with our hospital program, but if you are, we’d like to hear about it.  Everyone may join in on the fun. See more information at https://www.pgares.org/

Pass the word to others. Please check in if only to give us a holler. Looking for a big turn out.

Thank you and 73,
