The Reading Radio Club
Meeting On The Air
By: Rich Ahrens, W3WJC
Check into the RRC MEETING ON THE AIR on the Friday evenings that we do not have an in-person meeting. The net, on 146.91 MHz, starts at 8:00 p.m. with the latest AMATEUR RADIO NEWSLINE REPORT from the West Coast. 

 We then have an exchange of information that may be of interest to the members of the Reading Radio Club as well as those that are not RRC members.

The last part of the net is a roll call where we usually have 13 to 56 stations check-in and test their FM two-meter analog equipment.
The Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System, (CTCSS) frequency is 131.8 Hertz (3B). The CTCSS is 
often referred to as “PL” (Motorola’s trade name) or “Channel Guard” (GE/Ericsson’s trade name).
The net has been in operation since Friday January 21, 1994, when we had 13 check-ins during that first session, almost 27 years ago.
