Radio Nets

Nets on GMRS are just like Amateur Radio nets, that wikipedia describes as: an "on-the-air" gathering of amateur radio operators. Most nets convene on a regular schedule and specific frequency, and are organized for a particular purpose, such as relaying messages, discussing a common topic of interest, in severe weather (for example, during a Skywarn activation), emergencies, or simply as a regular gathering of friends for conversation

It's worth reading that wikipedia page before joining a net, but the rule of thumb is, there will be someone in charge of the net who will control traffic, faciliate checkins, control who speaks when, and deal with any chaos or confusion that comes along.


Tuesday 7:00pm on the 700

Tuesday Nights at 7:00pm on Buckhorn 700 (Extreme wide-area coverage)

This net is a quick check in of callsigns and location so we can get an idea of propagation on the new 700 repeater. The further you are out, the more welcome you are!


SWCRS Tech Net

Wednesday at 8:00 PM on Lookout 675 (Linked to Southwest Community Radio System)

Held Wednesdays, bring whatever radio related questions you might have for the net. The format of this net is back and forth, with the NCO calling for questions and then delegating them to folks on the air to chime in on. Like the Southwest Regional Net, this net opens with a portion for announcements relevant to the system or local area.


Southwest Regional Net

Sundays at 5 PM Mountain - Early Check-In at 4:30 PM on Lookout 675 (Linked to Southwest Community Radio System)

Join people from all over the Southwest Regional Repeater system in this fun get together.

The "roll call" list you hear is built from the previous week's check-ins. If you are not currently on the list, there is an opportunity to check-in for the first time after the roll-call is complete; you will then be added to the roll for the following week. Because the list is growing fast and we only have an hour to check people in, if you don't check-in for three weeks after being added, your name will be dropped from the roll. You can always be added back to the roll call later by waiting until new member check-ins are called. If you want to check-in but don't want to participate in the weekly net topic, you can check-in before the net begins at 4:30 PM. You will count as a check-in and not be called on during the regular roll call.


Tuesday 7:25 on the 725

Tuesdays Nights at 7:25 PM on Metro 600

The Tuesday night "7:25 on the 725" net is also linked to the Metro 600 repeater. If you check-in to the net and are told you have a poor signal, try switching to the opposite repeater and seeing if your signal improves. The Metro 600 and Mesta 725 repeaters are linked on Net nights from 7:15 PM to 8:30 PM.
