Alfonso, K6ASF, and others will be our Net Controls, as we look at PAPA’s newest operating mode, P25. As with any new and growing aspect of the hobby, there are lots of questions: “Which P25 radio should I consider?”, “Can I use a hotspot to get on P25?”, “How is P25 different from other modes?” We have a wealth of in-house P25 talent and, as with our other nets, the contribution of our talented PAPA members will ensure that “No P25 Question Goes Unanswered”.
