These are our weekly regular radio nets. Members and non-members are encouraged to check in to the nets to validate that your transmitter and antenna are working on the designated frequency band. When more people check into the net, more signal reports can be provided so that all participants can determine the operation and signal coverage for their transmitter.
All times are local Eastern Time
Reminders for each net are sent using the club email reflector. Some email accounts route the net reminders to the spam filter. Gmail in particular is known to prevent the user from seeing the reminder emails. All the major email providers allow some method of preventing routing messages from a predetermined source to the spam folder. You should check the help files for your email provider for instructions about how to configure the spam filter. The reminders are all sent from an email address @k4lrg.org.
If you are NCS and want preamble dialog please go here for the text that will help you frame the before and after meeting dialog.
