      We have a youth net on a local repeater here in the San Francisco Bay area. It is at 2pm local, so that will be available on EchoLink during your 3:30-4:30 period. More details here:

      My Radio MB class all checked in on that net.

      Consider contacting special event stations. There should be several on the air for the 9/11 anniversary, and those are much easier to find that just calling CQ. My class on was on SKYWARN Recognition Day, so we worked a few National Weather Service stations.
