Daily and Weekly Nets

Local Nets

The Yavapai Amateur Radio Club sponsors many nets.

Checking into the 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.

If you find no one talking on one of these nets go ahead and ask if anyone is listening and talk to them when they respond. You don’t have to be a “Net Control Station” to have a conversation.

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.
