Event Chairman, Woody, K3YV will host the 24,000 Rooster Net Special Event as net control on May 26, 2023 using the Special Event call sign W3R. All check-ins will be entitled to a commemorative Special Event Certificate with the appropriate validation seals. Any check-ins appearing in the official logs from the 20,000 and 23,000 events will have additional validation seals affixed to their certificates specifically for their participation as indicated in the official historic logs. All Roosters in the log of the day will automatically be mailed their official certificate to their current rooster address contained in the database without further request. Non-roosters recorded in the log of the day can receive a certificate by sending their address with a request for a certificate to the Chief Rooster, W8REH (QRZ address). Donations to the Rooster Net are always encouraged, keeping in mind postage alone is $1.26.
We are a group of amateur radio operators who have been meeting on the radio every day of the year since September 10, 1957 when the net was founded by Doug Frothingham, then K2IZI of Smithtown, NY.
We operate on or about the frequency of 3.990 MHz. Anyone with a general class
or higher license is welcome to participate.
Our official net time is 0600 to 0700 Eastern (US).
Many gather early and provide a great prenet, and we usually run over time.
In addition to our on-air activity, we get together (Flockings) many times throughout the year. In April we have lunch get together in the Pennsylvania Dutch country. September finds us in Stowe, PA for our annual golf / dinner / picnic weekend. Not to mention our Florida Flocking held in February
(usually at HamCation).
There are also smaller gatherings monthly on the first Friday in Limerick, PA (Copperfield Restaurant) , the first Monday in State College, PA, and at many of the larger hamfests.
