The “Rare Ones” of New Orleans are changing the primary operating frequency from 7.260 MHz to 7.275 MHz. The change was due to a foreign short wave station broadcasting on 7.260 MHz during the operating hours of the “Rare Ones” of New Orleans Round Table. Of course, the “Rare Ones” maybe anywhere on the Amateur Bands!
Congratulations to Jose Gonzalez from Powder Springs, Georgia for becoming Associate Number 161 of the Rare Ones of New Orleans. Jose has a great shack and is a loyal supporter of the Rare Ones.
If you hear Jose out there on the bands make sure you give him a call!
