Humans are born social animals. We always have to interact with each other through communicating. It doesn’t matter the distance apart that a person might be, but the key is to have a platform which can enable communication. One such platform which has been in use for ages is the ham radio.
Ham Radios or Amateur radio enables the hobbyist involve to carry out various activities remotely via radio waves such as have contests, help others during time of distress, provide emergency communication, etc, hence the popularity which doesn’t seem to go away even with the increased utilization of social media and other modern platforms. Moreover, through they enable users to network and create friendship. Basically, most of the activities involved are for leisure. These radios might be a bit costly, but the satisfaction derived is what keeps the hobbyist going.
The Trans Provincial Net was an Amateur Radio Net whose main purpose was to serve the ham community.
The Trans Provincial Net used to meet daily on 7.055MHz lower sideband from 7am to 6pm Eastern Time.
The website was live from 2002 till mid 2008 when it was dropped and left to expire. I am a ham radio hobbyist, who sees the value in keeping this meeting place alive.
