Southwest Regional Net

The Southwest Regional Net is the general weekly cattle call for all users on our system; this is a great time to verify your gear is working properly, tune in with hundreds of other folks, and chat about whatever the net control operator throws out as a topic. This net opens with a portion for announcements – tune in to stay current on developments on the repeater system, regular events, and any other local happenings that folks wish to share.

Net control operators: the net’s scripts and spreadsheets are available here: SWCRS Drive – Southwest Regional Net

Tech Net

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.
