Utility / 14452.5 USB CFARS propagation exercise net #3
« on: February 05, 2012, 1630 UTC »
1629Z 45444 Bunch of stations doing comm checks.  Talked about frequency Foxtrot & Golf (14452.5 is not Golf).

Callsigns on the net:
CIW308 Made reference to the propagation net exercise. Also calling for any MARS stations.
CIW322 Name is Mike.
CIW650 Net control. CFARS session 3 of the propagation net exercise.
CIW681 (in Edmonton)
XLG988 Signal Regiment (forgot the regiment number). In Yellow Knife.

A bunch of them were going to go to frequency Golf. Did some earlier propagation checks on Golf, but no contact. So more went. Golf is higher in frequency somewhere.

CFARS. If so, then (from the Canadian Military Frequency Guide):
Alpha: 13971.0
Bravo: 14584.5
Charlie: 14445.0
Delta: 14458.5
Echo: 20957.0
Foxtrot: 20970.0
Golf: 20962.0*
Hotel: 20870.0
India: 20770.0
Juliet: 14452.5*
Kilo: 14448.0
Lima: 20976.0

From another source:
Mike: 13952.5
Whiskey: 6981.0*
Xray: 6961.0
Yankee: 4051.0
Zulu: 4022.0

Other: 6977.0, 13970.0, 14385.0

* Confirmed from this exercise

Listened on Golf and heard some very weak stations. One of them said to go back to Juliet. Now there's a bunch back on 14452.5.

1746Z Juliet CIW444 wants to try Golf. CIW650 now asking others to go to Golf.
