Local and Regional Nets

AARC club members are encouraged to check-in to the various regional nets that take place on a regular basis. These serve to improve our operating practices, to get to know other amateurs, and to share information related to amateur radio.

Current net schedules are as follows. Times for some nets will change with the shift to standard time this Fall.


The Weekly Amethyst ARES HF Net

This regional net is open to all amateurs, and generally includes updates related to ARES in the Amethyst District. This net occurs every Wednesday at the following coordinates:
