{Collins} Re: CCA New Years Eve Party on the air.



Hi Guys: I e-mailed John after receiving his message but haven't heard back.
Hope he's not freezing in the dark! I think 14.263 is good after the regular
net to 8 or so Central then switch to 80 meters. To ensure that everyone can
get on who wants to we should pick a frequency above 3.850. How about 3.863
plus or minus QRM? Or maybe 7.263? I'll be in and out for most of the time
and would be happy to help with net control. Let me know your thoughts.
Cheers, Peter.
