I will work on finding that information for you... at some point... :D
That's like a "When You Feel Like It Net" for ham radio. The stations
checkin in on whatever band, mode, or time they feel like doing so.
Then, the Net Control/Logging station will note the checkin in the same
time frame...when they feel like it...which could be...never. :P
One can't be "fashionably late" for a net...and that definitely applies
to medical appointments, job interviews, etc. In the case of a medical appointment, if you're more than 10 minutes late, you have to reschedule
(it may be 6 weeks to 6 months before they can get you in), and you have
to pay a hefty no-show fee (which could be $100 or more). In the case of
a job interview, it means that you likely won't be offered that position.
As a side note, there was this place looking for a Morse Code operator.
There were 4 guys already there, when a fifth guy showed up. He hadn't
been there long, when he got up, and walked in through a door. Confused,
the other guys thought he'd be turned away...but moments later, the door opened, and this gentleman is standing with the young man, who had just
moments before, walked through the door. The gentleman said "Thank you
for coming, but the job has been filled!!".
Incredulous, the other guys said "Wait a minute!! We've been here for
over an hour, and this guy shows up late, is not seated even for 5
minutes, then he walks through the door!!".
The gentleman replied "I'm sorry...but all the while you've been sitting
out here, in the background there has been a Morse Code message noting "If
you can copy this, come inside...the job is yours!! The young man did what
the message noted, so the job is his!!". :)
Years ago, I asked a fellow ham radio operator what his secret to the learning of Morse Code was. He said "I learned all the dirty words first!!".
I laughed, and said "Well, you can't say them on the air...but, if it
helps, more power to you".
A few months later, this one club was teaching Morse Code class over
the VoIP mode of Echolink, and the characters they first taught formed
the S expletive. I thought "I'll be d@mned!!" <G>...but, when you looked
at the dot and dash pattern of ... .... .. -
it then made perfect sense. :)
The best one I heard was with 4 guys sitting around a restaurant table
in Annapolis, Maryland, telling each other dirty jokes in Morse Code, or
in CW (Continuous Wave) as amateur radio operators refer to it.
This drop dead gorgeous, curvaceous, female <WHISTLE!><G>...walked up
to them, and sternly admonished them "You boys need to watch your
language. I teach CW at the Naval Academy across the street!!", and then
turned around, and walked out!!
They were as red as tomatoes and strawberries...and that's a true
