75 Meter Extra Class WAS Net



We would like to welcome aboard the GERATOL Website, two new registrants. Thanks for taking the time to register on our website gents, and we look forward to working you on the net in the near future.

New Registrants:

  • Dennis – WD9HCF who hails from IL. Dennis’ call is good for those needed a 2×3 W call for an endorsement.
  • Bob – WD8ING who will be bringing up KY on the net, when he checks in.

Should you have any questions about the website and/or the net, feel free to fire me an email to: Kevin N1KL


We are pleased to announce, the GERATOL Net will be activating a special event station, “W1G” to help celebrate our 50th year as a Worked All States net on 80 Meters.

W1G will be active starting Feb. 7th and will remain active through Feb. 20th. W1G will be checking into the GERATOL Net, and will also be active in the Extra Class portion of other bands, to promote the GERATOL Net to Extra Class operators who may not be familiar with the net.

For those who work W1G during the GERATOL Net, a special commemorative QSL card will be issued to them, without the need for a SASE. For those working W1G off the net, a SASE will be required.


As most are aware, the GERATOL Net, and Dave – KJ8V and Sandy – KJ8W, are sponsoring a special Certificate to commemorate our 50th year as a Worked All States net.

Dave has informed me, multiple Certificates have already been issued, and there are several GERATOLers who are still working toward completing the requirements for their commemorative certificate. It’s not too late to start working toward this colorful certificate. It’s a great way to help you celebrate the 50 years our net has been serving the Ham Radio community on 80 Meters.

You don’t need a GERATOL Number to work toward the certificate, but you need to work folks who do have a GERATOL Number. So, for those with GERATOL numbers who care to assist those working for the certificate, come up on frequency and share your G# with those looking to put you in their log.

Details on the requirements may be found on our website, both under the POST announcing the certificate, as well as in the tool bar at the top of the page under Awards, then under Other Awards and Certificates. Below is a sample of the certificate itself. A nice way to celebrate our anniversary, while having fun renewing old acquaintances or making new friends.

All the best to new and old GERATOLers alike. We hope to hear you all on the net in the near future.

Regards, Kevin N1KL Website Administrator
