Hi All: Glad I found your forum. I saw a post on the Forest River forum so here I am . Is there an RV net on any HF frequencies? Just purchased a 2012 Rockwood Wind Jammer 3001W. I traded my 2003 Wild Wood. I have been a ham since 1960 and an RVr since 1965. Best Regards; Eaglelover/Frank

Welcome aboard.

There are bunches of HF nets for RV'ers. We do not have one for this group, however. A good google search will produce a list of most of them, and ARRL has one, Good Sam, Family Motorcoach Association, and others.

Someday when I get around to it, we have plans to build a links page for ORR.net with reciprocal links to these and other RV/Ham sites.

When I get around to it.

Tell us a little about loving those eagles. Do yo mean real birds or is that a sports team?

Again, welcome aboard.

There are several RV nets scattered about.. Alas, I've never managed to hear but one of them, it changed frequency, and I'm not sure of the new one.

I do not have the frequencies handy however.. I know there is one at Noon, 3pm and 8pm.

I think the first and last are 80 meters, middle one is 40.. www.arrl.org may find some of them for you if you click on the proper tab (public service I think,, Let me check)

The link to net search is HERE However I was unable to get lucky on that page with finding RV nets.

Oh, Times are Eastern.. I usually try to check into the breakfast or before breakfast clubs, 3.973 3am to 8 am. Depending on when I get out of bed and visit the other room.
