Default What Happend To The Marconi Net?


What's going on. The Marconi net on 3972.0 disappeared. Now all hear is AM transmissions. Anyone have the scoop on what happened?

Just going by what was said here, and on that web site, try checking the frequency again. As in 3.872 and 3.972?

Yeah it's 3.872 and moves occasionally due to intentional QRM.

If you like the net, join the yahoo group as the frequency changes are generally emailed out around net start time at 9pm.

Thursdays are on 1988 on 160m but with very sparse turnout.

Tnx for the information. I'll have to join the yahoo groups. It used to be on 3872 every night but it's no longer there. Sometimes I just like to listen in there.

Yeah last night was 3.843 if you checked then. I like the net a lot for what it's trying to do, but with all the jamming that tends to concentrate there and sometimes the level of the participants, I have to be in the right mood to join.

When the host loses his temper and taunts the jammers...it really starts to get on my nerves.

Try this net. They have a lot of great exchange. Much better than the bloviating of that other net control.
