    All properly licensed HAMs are welcome and encouraged to join this challenging Worked All States Net on 3.668MHZ starting at 0100Z each and every evening.

    No need to be a member, or to hold a GERATOL number, simply check into the net any time. Of course, old timers are also welcome, and we look forward to new and old members joining us on frequency.

    For more information, check out the GERATOL Website at: http://geratol.net

    I provided a 2x1 NH to many in the 80-90's with a big signal heard coast to coast and elsewhere plus several Beverages to hear the weak ones. I may try it again if time allows.
    Dont think I ever registered?

    Hi Carl. I’ll check the database and see if you were ever issued a “GERATOL” number. We’d love to hear you back on the net some time. NH is always in demand. Thanks for the reply. N1KL. Kevin

    I may try to check in again. I am a Navy Veteran (22 years) and, since I last checked in, have been licensed over 50 years. I don't believe I am registered. I have a modest top loaded vertical antenna for transmit (100 watts max) and a new MFJ low noise receive only loop which I am eager to try out..
    I am not on LOTW.

    Hi again Carl, sure enough, you already have a GERATOL # and I worked you back in 1993 on October 29th. I think I may have worked you with my old call, KQ1N at the time. At any rate, if you can put up with a small pile up, if you were to check in, I guarantee you would be inundated with calls. The nice part about the net, is that no QSLs are needed for the Endorsements, just the basic award, so the vast majority of calls are just to say hi, and swap numbers......all the best, Kevin N1KL Formerly, KQ1N

    Hi Tom, I too am a Navy Veteran. We actually have an Award called the Veteran's Salute award, for guys who work vets from all the services....

    Give it a shot to check in, and we'd love to hear you on from Texas !!

    Regards, Kevin N1KL

    How about that. I recall seeing GerItol being advertised on the Arthur G show, but did not know he was a HAM !! Wow. We spell our version GerAtol of course, so I bet Arthur (God rest his soul) would not complain on two fronts ! 1 Behing a HAM himself, and 2 it is spelled differently.

    Thanks for the reply, and for that tidbit of trivia...very interesting...Kevin N1KL

    Hello Ian, great to hear from you. Gosh, you are what we call an "OLD TIME GERATOLer" with that three digit number. We hope you get that 80mtr antenna up, and are able to rejoin us some evening, and renew some old acquaintances.
    Thanks for the reply, and the info. 73, Kevin N1KL
