Firac M/C News

The 20 Metre net is on 14.320MHz at 09.30 UTC.  

Firac was formed following a meeting of radio amateurs from Switzerland, Germany, France and Denmark in Geneva on the 18th Sept 1960. In 1964 the German Railway Radio Amateurs organised the first official congress in Hamburg on the 20th September. It was a bold move but the final outcome of the first congress was the formation of Firac. The organisation promotes radio activity between other railway radio amateurs worldwide and continues to grow.    The Firac Award is very popular and available to all amateurs and SWL's.  Unfortunately due to problem with the homepage I cannot publish a pictue of the award in the pictures section of the website. We are still hopeful of a new Firac group being organised in Spain. I am hoping to issue a revised list of the M/C group members following prir to the next congress. The Norwegian Group now has 3 members.  If you wish to join the Firac M/C group of Firac, you can find an application from on this site. Please return completed forms to G4GNQ QTHR or by E Mail. The membership costs just 5€ or 1US dollar. This assists me with the production and postage costs for the newsletter.  I will try to amend the Firac nets information on the events page in due course.  Pictures from the the Firac congresses will be added to the picture section. The Firac nets are held on Sunday  from 08.30 UTC on 14.320 MHz. The M/C Net, is held each Wednesday from 14.30 UTC  on 21.300MHz. +/- 5KHz. As conditions are very poor at 15.00 UTC members go onto Echolink for the weekly chat.
