As you may or may not have realised, the Sunday morning 80m net has been suffering from the effects of poor propagation of late, and it has therefore been decided to add a new weekly net on 40m.

The Sunday morning net will continue to run as normal (as will the 15m Lunchtime net), but from Wednesday 3rd July, there will also be a 40m net on 7.080MHz LSB from 08:00am. It will run until further notice, but may just end up becoming a seasonal thing. If it works out OK, I'll add it to the regular MSARS 'Net' schedule.

Sure, this frequency sits toward the bottom of the band, mixing it up with some of the 'recognised' digital mode frequencies, but at this time of the morning in the summertime, it tested fine earlier this week.

That could just be fortunate though, as 7.078MHz USB is the frequency nominally recognised as the JS8Call frequency, so be prepared to slide up the band five or ten Kc's if you can't hear anyone, or you can hear loads of digital wailing and squealing. You will also be just above FT8 on 7.074 USB too of course.

I believe that Ken G3WYN, Phil G4UDU. Sean EI7CV and Gerry EI9DZ are likely to be 'founder members', so if you're neither working nor having a lie-in, jump on 40 and call in.

'Nor' is a great word by the way, and greatly underused in my opinion.
