    Using the W4AX tuner , I listened to the net this morning. During the summer months, conditions are not as good as during the winter months. I know folks don’t hear my mobile signal well during the winter. Why even try during the summer?

    At any rate, it was good to hear the familiar voices on the Christian Amateur Radio Fellowship Net this morning.

    Be Blessed and 73

    I enjoy checking into the net and keeping in touch with you guys. Wish we had more amateurs from the brotherhood checking in. I try to attend the North American and the Kiamichi Clinic each year. It’s not always possible for me.

  • KG0ND

    your family! We do live in a very great country, and I am proud to be an American living in a
    Great land! KG0ND

Other steaming sites are: and One of the purposes of this net is to share church news. The church building were I worship in Searcy Arkansas had a fire.

    Early Christians were not called Christians but rather disciples. You were a disciple of the Rabi you followed. In the later years of Christ ministry the term Christian was not a complement. But rather a finger pointing of someone who followed, (you know who). Today we like being called a Christian and would balk at being called a disciple. Why? Because being a disciple carries a greater commitment. A higher standard. How serious are we today? Are you a Christian or a Disciple?

    Just food for thought

    I was a member in 1967-1970. My work took me to places where it was almost impossible to check in. I’m retired now so I’ve been checking in more often. In the early years we all had the same QSL card. It had a beautiful poem on it cant remember all of it but the last line was “Is it any wonder God hears and answers prayers” If any one has that poem and could send it to me I will be grateful THANKS D.B. WB4BRV

  • WB4BRV

    Here is the poem that used to be on our QSL cards
    If radio’s slim fingers, can pluck a melody from night, and toss it across a continent or sea
    If petalled white notes of a violin, are thrown across a mountain or a city din
    If songs like crimson roses are drawn from the thin blue air
    Then why do mortals wonder if God hears and answers prayer


    Well, will keep trying both the 40m & 80m nets (when I wake early or can’t sleep). This AM 80m was in and out and the distance plus my 500W & 2:1 SWR just couldn’t make it though you heard me down in the noise. Thanks for the website & the nets. Will attempt 40m in 15 minutes. God bless. Bill – K5GJQ

    Adam … sorry to hear that. The band can sure be fickle. We all try to listen and relay stations in. Thanks for trying and we look forward to hearing you next week.

    Hello Brothers. I used to be a regular member and faithful participant in the morning net but more years ago that I care to think about I let Ham Radio slip to the wayside. I have maintained my license but haven’t actively participated in the hobby for about 20 years. I’m trying to get back into it but there’s a steep learning curve for an old fellow like me so I beg your patience. Perhaps I’ll see you soon on the net.

    73, David KB7DK (Formerly KB5OV)

  • Glad to see David back in the hobby!

  • AC0BD

    I emailed the October 2018 newsletter on Friday, Oct. 12. Please send me an email ( or let me know on the net if you did not get it. We had 14 returned due to bad email addresses.

    73 and 75
