February 16 @ 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM EST

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 7:30 PM on day First of the month, repeating indefinitely

An event every month that begins at 7:30 PM on day Third of the month, repeating indefinitely

So, just what is simplex? When we use the term simplex, we’re talking about radio to radio communication directly, without using a repeater.

Why should we care about simplex? We know there is always the possibility of an emergency which can make normal communication systems inoperable. This might include telephone, internet, and local VHF/UHF repeaters. Similarly, such an emergency can result in any or all of these systems becoming overloaded with traffic. In either case, Simplex may be the only option available for communication and passing of messages.

The Central SC CARC Simplex Net exists to provide an opportunity to learn and practice Simplex skills. If local repeaters are out of service, who would you be able to contact and who could contact you? We certainly don’t want to wait until an emergency to find out.

This net is conducted on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month at 7:30 PM on frequency 146.400. All licensed operators are welcome and encouraged to participate.
