Join us for the launch of the Outdoor Adventure USA Amateur Radio Net on April 24th, 2008

By unwire, April 22, 2008

Outdoor Adventure USA was originally created by “off-roading” enthusiasts who also happened to be licensed Amateur Radio operators (Ham radio). They believe that safely enjoying outdoor adventures, (while using a vehicle), seemed to be a perfect marriage with Amateur Radio. For a host of reasons, Ham radio is an indispensable part of enjoying the outdoors, especially in the more remote areas where this adventure is sometimes the best.

They have therefore combined interests in outdoor adventures with Ham Radio and created this net and its accompanying website, www.oausa.net. The net will host a wide variety of discussions concerning topics such as camping, vehicle preparation and maintenance, cooking, wilderness survival, first aid, Ham Radio (operation, installation and maintenance), photography, firearms, and many others.

This net will air weekly and will be open to anyone with the necessary Ham equipment. It will be an open discussion of the many topics which are of interest to outdoor enthusiasts and will be an opportunity to have a direct conversation with the speakers and ask questions and offer advice and information. The “net” will be open to any licensed Ham or anyone who is under the direct supervision of a licensed Ham. The “net” will be available just about anywhere in the US with the proper connections. A complete discussion of how to participate is covered in the Forums at http://oausa.net/forums/ .
