Bernie Gates was a very active Amateur Radio operator and TV / Radio Serviceman from Albany, Western Australia.

Bernie became a silent key in 1992.

This Net commenced in the early 70’s. A group of Amateurs would get on air, supposedly whilst shaving, for a quick natter before starting work for the day. 7095 KHz or 3610 KHz +/- QRM depending on time of year and propagation…..

Daily at 0000 UTC, 0800 WST (except Sunday)

Generally lasts ½ to 1 Hour.

Amateurs have called in from as far afield as Exmouth and Esperance in Western Australia and now with the wonders of modern science we have a new member all the way from Melbourne in Florida via Remote Hams.
