Local Nets

The following is a list of radio nets which are held in the local area. For those who are unfamiliar, a radio net is a “on air” get together. They can be formal or informal. Formal or directed nets have a “net control operator”. In this type of net, you don’t transmit until the net control operator request you to do so or if you have emergency traffic. Nets can be an informal “round table” discussion where it is handed off to the next operator who has checked in. Nets can be for discussion, traffic passing and handling, and the most common are emergency communications nets. These emergency communication nets are either in real emergencies like a disaster or bad weather, they may also be held on a regular basis to practice for disasters and test comms equipment.
