75 Meter Extra Class WAS Net




The 50th Anniversary 2021/2022 GERATOL Net season will be wrapping up the end of April. With the daylight savings time shift behind us, there is still time to get on the net, work some old friends and/or meet some new ones. The net still launches at 0100Z each evening, on 3.668 Mhz +/- QRM.

Also, don’t forget, the Special Anniversary Certificate, sponsored by Dave and Sandy, is still attainable for those who have not yet completed the requirements. (see example of certificate below)

50th Anniversary Certificate

Details for how to qualify for the certificate may be found on our GERATOL Website.

Our Anniversary Special Event Station, “W1G” completed it’s run, with hundreds of QSO’s on multiple bands and modes. All QSL cards for those who worked W1G on the net frequency, during the net have been mailed out. So, if you have not yet received your commemorative card (See below example) send an email to Kevin at and let him know. For those who worked W1G on other bands, and/or not during the net, who sent an SASE, those cards have also been mailed.
