Cruiseheimers and Doo-Dah Nets
A User/Lurker Perspective
Though many frequencies are 'advertised', the vast majority of times Cruiseheimers broadcasts on 8152 kHz at 0830 ET with alternative frequencies of 8146 kHz and 8164 kHz. During our lurking times, we have heard Cruiseheimers a couple of times on 6227 kHz.
Net protocol is simple and is discussed as a preample to each Cruiseheimer session. A complete protocol is provided at BDB.
The Cruiseheimers players try to record each Cruiseheimers session. SV C Language maintains a log of these sessions which can be found here.
Doo-Dah Network (DDN)
Dick Giddings of SV St. Jude is the network manager of DDN. He recently received the Award of Merit from the Ocean Cruising Club (OCC) and receives praise from USCG and the Salty Dawg Rally participants. DDN will soon have a web site that will detail the operations of this valuable service.
