ATV Net Mondays 7PM

Each Monday evening the Amateur Television (ATV) group conducts a net at 7PM on the N7PIR system. ATV is the transmission of broadcast quality video and audio via amateur radio. This is not a typical net and its purpose is to facilitate the coordination and discussion of the video and audio transmissions taking place via ATV.  Therefore traffic during the net on N7PIR is sometimes sporadic, but the net is active so please keep in mind that the repeater system is in use during this time to support the net.

 

The ATV group is friendly and welcomes visitors and questions, so if you want to know more feel free to ask. If you want to join in the fun, watch the video stream via the Internet or get further information about ATV, have a look at either http://www.oregonatv.org/ or www.batc.tv.
