Nets & Repeaters
CARS Net is a social net which is held every Thursday night at 9:00pm on the 146.880 repeater. Any amateur radio
operator who is in the repeaters coverage area is encouraged to join the fun. The purpose of this net is to have
fun, but we also use it for passing NTS traffic from time to time. Depending on who Net Control is, we might even
do a little training exercise.
Preamble for the CARS net, remember this is only a guideline
Sunshine Net is a social net held every Sunday night at 9:00 PM on the 146.88 repeater. It replaced the Sunday
night Jackson County Public Service Net that was discontinued by Tim, WD8PMD.
Slow Scan Net is held every Wednesday evening at 7:00pm on simplex 146.490.
The Guard Rail Net is special, you must check in to find out more about it. If you don't hear any traffic by 6:45am
toss your call out, someone will be listening for sure. Also on the 146.880 repeater. This Net is up for re-naming.
CW Net is Sundays at 8:00 PM real CW on 28.100 Mhz.
