WARS (Willits Amateur Radio Society) will hold a meeting on Saturday,  Feb 21, 2015, at 11:30 am, at Old Mission Pizza in Willits. All hams and their families are welcome to attend. This is a great time to visit with old friends, or meet face to face with folks you have only ‘met on the net’. The club will buy the pizza and you buy your drink(s) and anything special like a sandwich or salad bar. Mike Stephens, a local wildlife biologist and owl specialist, will be speaking on “Radio Technology Used for Studying and Surveying Wildlife”. He will be talking about the tracking of Spotted Owls and Marbled Murrlets using RADAR (in a van) for studies deep in the woods. Mike will also have photos and sample radio transmitters for inspection.

Mendocino County Ham Radio Nets

If you’re new to ham radio in the Mendocino area, there are several weekly VHF amateur radio networks that are worthwhile. Most (but not all) of the nets are held each Wednesday evening. There are local city-area nets followed by a county-wide linked-repeater net at 7:30PM. That’s followed by a county-wide simplex net, Walking Repeaters, at around 8:00PM.

The up-to-date list of Mendocino area nets can be found at McARCS Net Page.
