    Local Amateur Radio NETs

    An amateur radio net is an "on radio" gathering of amateur radio operators. A net may be formal or informal. They reoccur at regular intervals on a schedule. A net control operator is the individual presiding over the net that directs whose turn in order may speak. A predetermined topic may be selected or there may be open discussion depending on the type of net. Some nets serve a specific practical purpose while others are merely social. Getting involved in a social net is a quick way to meet other hams and become familiar with the process of repeater or simplex operation.

  • List of EN21 Verified Area Nets (link)

    The Bellevue Amateur Radio Club official weekly net is the Bellevue Amateur Radio Club Protocol Net which takes place Mondays at 20:00 ( 8:00pm CST ). The Protocol Net gives all area amateur radio operators the opportunity to participate and share traffic and announcements. This is not a round table discussion net, it is a short net in which you check in and become informed of local radio related events.
