IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT THE NXDN NET

This is an important announcement for Hams in Northern Pinellas, Northwest Hillsborough, Hernando and Pasco Counties who have been unable to participate recently in the TampaBay Area NXDN Net.

Beginning Wednesday, April 15th, this DIGITAL Net will move to its new 7:30 PM start time and will temporarily air on the 443.450 Holiday repeater. This will enable Hams who have invested in NXDN digital radios to, once again, join this weekly Net. For those of you who normally use the NI4CE-Holiday repeater to check-in to the Eagle Net at 8:30 PM, 443.450 will revert back to its normal Analog mode at the end of the NXDN Net.

We are also pleased to announce a new home for the Pasco NXDN repeater that operated on 442.650. The West Central Florida Group, Inc. has secured permission to move this NXDN repeater to the Holiday tower site. Watch and listen for more news on this exciting development coming soon.

The West Central Florida Group, Inc. and NI4CE is committed to providing the repeater infrastructure needed to keep Amateur Radio growing in the 21st Century.

Our organization is proud to help serve the needs of local hams and organizations in the area. If you or an organization you are affiliated with is interested in starting a net on our system, just contact us!
