Stump Knocker Net
The Stump Knocker net is held Monday evenings at 8.00pm eastern time.
The net was formed as a way to connect like-minded folks from all over the country, even the world, with a Technician ham license.
The net is held on the TGIF digital mobile radio (DMR) network. The reason we went with DMR is that with a multi-mode digital voice modem (MMDVM) and a digital capable radio (DMR, D-STAR or Fusion) and internet you can connect from anywhere.
The Technician license is the ‘entry level’ license and the equipment is cheaper and less complicated that a short-wave, high-frequency (HF) radio that requires at least a General class license. HF equipment can cost upwards of $1,000 for the radio and then you can end up spending another $500 or more for a power supply, antenna and associated hardware and cable.
