The Green Valley Amateur Radio Club Net meets every Sunday night at 7pm on 2 meters at 145.29/27.
The object of the net is to keep abreast of emergency communication proceedures and communicate other information that might be important to GVARC members.
Anyone is free to join in on the net to pass along ideas that they may have, or if they need information pertaining to the club or amateur radio.
Participants are requested to check in when requested, "With
Traffic Comment" or "Without Traffic Comment" - Even if you just plan to listen in.
NCS (Network Control Station) has opted to use the word “Comment” instead of "Traffic". Thus a normal check in will be "Your Call" with or without Comment. He will still call the station with comments first and then move on to all checked in stations asking for a short transmission from each.
The GVARC 20 meter "Snow Bird Net" starts on Wednesday, May 10 for 2017 and run until this September. It meets weekly at 1 p.m. Green Valley time (2000 GMT) on or near 14.242 MHz SSB (20 meters). An informal warm-up session usually precedes the net, so come early. Net control is Ray Soifer, W2RS, with Tom Lang, K7VOA, as back-up, using the club call WE7GV.
