    PLUS.... the Deep South Club has a weekly 10m fun net on Thursday nights 28.420, and a 2m net on Wednesdays 146.745..... both at 7pm. AND if you get over to Mobile, we have a weekly lunch on Wednesdays. The location is annouced on the club's facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1695601034008986/

    There are a LOT of ham activities in this area.

    Guys, I really appreciate it. I will get set up when I get down there and call in Wednesday on both nets if everything works out and I get time to myself!

    Thank you all once again,

    Josh,

    Happy Memorial Day to you!

    I hope to hear you on from Gulf Shores, although on VHF/UHF FM I “hear” better than “am heard”!

    73,

    I spend quite a bit of time in Gulf Shores. There is a repeater in Foley, just north of Gulf Shores. It has light activity. There is also a repeater in Robertsdale that has good coverage. I have heard a few QSOs on that repeater as well. Both repeaters were friendly. You can find the frequencies on the https://repeaterbook.com/index.php/en-us/

    People that find out I'm only 20 miles from Gulf Shores are usually amazed to discover that I never go there. It became way too crowded for me about 40 years ago, and has only gotten worse. I was on the survey crew that laid out the Hwy 59 four-lane from I-10 to Gulf Shores in 1974. I used to enjoy skin diving and spearfishing down there, but not with shoulder to shoulder people these days. I hope you have a great time there, sincerely I do, but it's not my idea of a vacation spot.
    Hope to catch you on the Robertsdale repeater while you're down here!

    I think of it as part of the "Redneck Riviera" running from Panama City (Beach), FL to Gulf Shores.
