    To All Hams/Railfans:

    I would like to start a weekend net dealing with Ham Radio and trains. Would anyone be interested? We can discuss if we should buy that new Big Boy or the IC756PRO!

    If you are not a Ham but own a shortwave that can receive SSB, you can tune in!

    Well, I am a Ham and have a Kenwood TS570D, but unfortunately live a place where I can't put up any antenna (!@#$ home owners association), so I will have to stick to model train for now. I would love to get back on the air though.

    In about 1 month, when I move into our new home, I'll get the 10M radio up and running again. Just let me know where you will be and I'll at least listen. Eventually I'll get a radio with more than one band! ;)

    Well, I am a ham of long standing, but have not been on HF for a number of years. All I have right now is a 2m/440 HT. I support your efforts, however, even if I can't participate.

    Hey Andy, all~~~~~~~~~

    AB3AO here (formerly N3PEB, license came up for renewal and I shot the dice on a new callsign).

    I am in the process of putting up my station (again)- got layed away when I moved 3 years ago.

    I will take note of the callsigns here. I have my 10 meter radio on the air and am waiting for an opportunity to get the TS-520S up as well. I am in a townhouse so my dipoles are strung in the attic along with a 2-meter homebrew beam.

    When I have the rest of the ops up- I'll let ya's know.

    In the meantime- I typically am listening and calling CQ around 28.440-28.480.

    By the way- how do you think I made out with the new call?
