    The GERATOL Net has resumed operation at 0100Z on 3.667 plus/minus QRM once again this season !!
    Those not familiar with the GERATOL Net, are probably wondering, what the heck is this GERATOL, some sort of medicine ?? Well, it can be quite habit forming, as well as beneficial to your health, but unlike it's "sound alike" medicinal namesake, it is actually a Worked All States net in the Extra Class portion of the 80M Ham Band.

    In this case, GERATOL stands for: Greetings Extra Radio Amateurs Tired of Operating Lately. Pretty clever, eh ? At least clever to those hams who remember the namesake medicine being advertised on the Ed Sullivan show !! For the younger folks, probably not so much. Young or old, new comer or old timer, ALL properly licensed hams are welcome and greatly encouraged to participate and join the fun.

    As mentioned, the net is a Worked All States net in the 80M Extra Class section of the band, and represents quite a challenge for those inclined to challenging, yet relaxing activities in the ham shack during those long, cold winter nights. To keep the interest level up, as new states come on board for you to work toward that WAS on 80M, the net has several challenging but very fun awards and activities.

    To find out more, go check the GERATOL Website at Or better yet, tune up to 3.667 Mhz some evening at 0100Z and jump in to say hi. You are more than welcome to join us, since no membership is required.
