Why check in to a ham radio net?

GET TO KNOW OTHERS

Ham radio nets are a great way to get your callsign “out there” and have the chance to network on-air with other hams in your area

PRACTICE YOUR SKILLS

Ham radio nets give you the opportunity to practice your on-air operating procedure. Knowing how to operate during a net is an important skill for all ham radio operators.

buy/sell equipment

Many weekly nets include the ability to hear about local used gear for sale. Don’t pay full price when you can find quality used gear from local hams. You’ll also make a contact/friend in the process!

stay up-to-date

Weekly nets usually provide news and announcements that local hams want to know about. Nets are a great way to stay in the know on local hamfests and other gatherings.

Digital Nets

Digital nets occur on DMR, D-STAR, and Yaesu System Fusion (Wires-X). They may or may not be carried on your local repeater. Check your local club website or contact your local repeater trustee to see what nets may be carried on digital repeaters in your area. If that net or node isn’t carried on your local repeater you can always use a personal hotspot to access the net.
