The Whitman Amateur Radio Public Service net is held every Sunday morning at 08:30 on 147.225+ PL 67.0. 

Club members and all other area hams are welcome to join the net. 

The purpose of this net is to establish a 2 meter frequency in the event of an emergency 
and to share information of interest with amateurs and all other listeners as well. 

We are always looking for new volunteers for net control.

Fox Hunt Information



Recent Fox Hunt details from Richard AG1B at the Whitman Club Field Day June 25th & 26th 2016

I arrived at the Field day site at the East Bridgewater Y and set the 146.535 mhz Fox box just off a trail about 100 yards from the upper pavilion. This would provide an opportunity for those members who have wanted to try Fox Box hunting a low pressure location for  first timers. Over the weekend I saw the following members find the Fox Box transmitter;  ROY KB1CYVMIKE WA1MAD, JEFF N1SOM, and JIM W1GQN. Congratulations to these Fox finders. If anyone else  participated please contact  RICHARD  AG1B.
73,    Richard,   AG1B

Please contact Richard AG1B at  rjmetcalf@comcast.net   if you would help support this part of the radio hobby.


New hunters or anyone wishing to pair up with someone, please contact either:

 Roy  KB1CYV           kb1cyv@comcast.net
    Richard  AG1B         rjmetcalf@comcast.net


Note: Future radio direction finding events  are scheduled for the second Saturday of the month.
The "Fox" committee is  looking for guest "Foxes" who know a secret location that would test the direction finding skills of the hunters.
