April 19 Net Check-In Comparison

Compare your signal strength—and voice quality—to your fellow operators with this recording from the April 19, 2020, Sunday Night UHF/VHF Net

This recording was made from the VHF side of W0ILO, Moorhead, and was edited to include only unique participant check-ins. Duplicate check-ins were included only where there was a substantial difference in signal quality.

Check-ins missing (a portion of) the first word indicate that insufficient time was allowed between the operator pressing their PTT button and starting to speak.
