A new 10-meter net is being held every Sunday at 3:00pm Central Time on 28.410 MHz.  KE5AL leads the net (Net Coordinator), but welcomes others who can be backup or be able to relay stations he cannot hear.  Challenge yourself and get active on 10-meters. You never know when propagation may turn into a great DX contact!
