CRHRC Amateur Radio Net – Thursday @ 8:00 PM

An amateur radio net or simply ham net, is an “on the air” gathering of amateur radio operators. Most nets convene on a regular schedule and specific repeater or frequency, and are organized for a particular purpose, such as relaying messages, discussing a common topic of interest, in severe weather, emergencies, or simply as a regular gathering of friends for conversation. Regularly scheduled nets are an opportunity for amateur radio operators to practice radio skills and test equipment for optimum performance.

Net Control Operator – Can you help?

The person that runs the Net is called the Net Control Operator. KB9VBR has made a video on How to be a Net Control Operator. Check it out and let us know if you can help out. We’d love to add you to our rotation!

Here is a sample of the CRHRC Net Script we commonly use.

NetLogger Operator – Can you help?

We are currently experimenting with using Netlogger to track check-ins. You can download and learn more about using Netlogger at Our friends from VARC recorded and posted a training video on how to use NetLogger. (Thanks for the share VARC!) We can always use more NetLogger Ops as well. Let us know if you can help out. We’d love to add you to the rotation.
