Rag of the Air Net - 8173 at 1900z

For those of you getting ready to get underway from various locations in the SW Pacific, don't forget about the Rag of the Air Net, on SSB at 8173 USB at 1900z (7 or 8am local time in Tonga/Fiji/Samoa/NZ). We're on this net every day, and would be happy to assist with weather info, shore communications, etc. Normally, we take check-ins around 8-8:15, and then we do the weather in the SW Pacific.

The net control is Jim on Also Island, on the northern coast of Vanua Levu in Fiji. He is sometimes light and difficult to hear, but there are boats in NZ and Tonga/Fiji who can help relay for you.

If you are getting ready to go on passage, Jim would prefer that you send an email to him to give him your boat name and info, crew info, and passage plan. That way when you check in, there are fewer questions. But if you've not done this, please check in anyway. Jim's email address is WDC7994 at Sailmail dot com.
