Good Morning Roosters!
Thank You for the honor of allowing me to be your Chief Rooster. I have been a Rooster since 2010 and was named Rooster of the Year in 2013. I have also held several other positions in the group over the years.
This year we will celebrate the 61th anniversary of the Rooster Net. We meet on 3.990 mhz LSB every day of the year, and have done so since September 10th of 1957. We start with a free spirited pre-net at 5AM or even earlier, and begin the net at 6AM. We take check-ins from most of the eastern half of the United States, but occasionally hear folks from other areas. Our spirited net control stations give each check-in two opportunities to make comments. We close the net after going through the check-ins twice or if things are busy, we close as late as 8:30 AM.
Our group is informal. To become a member we require prospective members to check in twenty times between 6AM and 7AM. After twenty check-ins, we give you the opportunity to become a full-fledged member with a friendly initiation.
Our group has an annual get together every summer which consists of a Thursday evening gathering at a Southeastern Pennsylvania location, followed on Friday with a friendly golf outing, a Friday afternoon lunch for those who are not golfing plus a Friday evening social, with a nice picnic all day Saturday.
We also have other informal get-togethers throughout the year. Check in with us on 3990 and become a member, and attend our events. You can also check on the Rooster Page for all coming and past events. We are a great group, so just check in on 3990 and say hello, and if you enjoy our gathering become a Rooster. We have had over 1435 amateurs become members.
