Local Nets

Weekly/Local Nets Nets

The Yavapai Amateur Radio Club currently sponsors three weekly nets.  They are the 2-Meter FM net, the 2-Meter Slow Speed CW net, and the 10-Meter SSB net.  Other nets will also be included.

Checking into the weekly nets and acting as net control are excellent ways to keep your radio skills top notch, plus gain confidence in yourself as an operator.  The nets are also good places to obtain practice for the numerous public service and Ares/Races events the club participates in throughout the year.

The Yavapai Amateur Radio Club encourages each net to periodically rotate Net Control among its participants in order to improve skills in this area.  The means for accomplishing this goal is left up to each net.
