The 7290 Traffic Net holds a training session each month on
the first Wednesday and the First Saturday. Both sessions are the same.
Here a way to learn correct traffic handling procedures.
Our Emergency Communications Checkin is held on the First Thursday of each month on the Mississippi Section Phone Net - 3862 (6 PM Summer and 5:30 PM Winter). This is primarily to check equipment for Emergency Operations Centers and for ARRL Emergency Response Appointees (SEC, ASEC, DEC, ASEC, EC, AEC, OES). Others are welcome to checkin during the normal net roll call.

Section Manager Remailer
The ARRL has made a useful service available to ARRL Members in Mississippi, who have an ARRL registered e-mail address. W5XX can send information through the ARRL Server which will then be rebroadcast to the 700 (out of the nearly 1,000 ) ARRL Members in Mississippi, who have registered their e-mail addresses with the ARRL. This can be of great benefit to advertise hamfests, club meetings, special events, etc. at no cost. To take advantage of this service, send a plain text message to firstname.lastname@example.org, and after review, he will send it on to the ARRL Server, if the content is appropriate. Contact email@example.com for more information.
