Panhandle ARC Nets – VHF

  • Panhandle Amateur Information Net — “PAIN”

Please join the group every Sunday evening at 8pm.  All area radio amateurs are invited to check-in to the PAIN net, either “for the count” or for a report of how your week went!  It is the place to exchange social, technical equipment available for sale or trade and any other information or comments on your mind.  We meet on the 146.940 W5WX “north” repeater.

  • W5WX “Morning Two Meter”

Any and every licensed amateur radio operator is welcome to take a morning break, grab a favorite beverage and check-in to W5WX “Morning Two Meter” on 146.940 weekdays — 10:00 am until 11:00 am. Join the fun and volunteer for a morning Net Control spot – call Scott KG5ZES at (806) 683-8910 to get set up.

Current Net Control Schedule:

  • Mon — Melinda KG5NWD
  • Tues — Open
  • Wed — Annie KI5KGE
  • Thur — Open
  • Fri — Scott KG5ZES
  • Alternate — open

Volunteers are taken at any time for net control slots – contact Net Manager Scott KG5ZES at (806) 437-5947 to get set up. We have a fun group — the net is a great way to share and gain experience in operating protocols and technical info and to get to know our area “hams.”

Morning 2M Net Control Info: Use this PARC Morning 2 Meter Net Sample Preamble or adapt to your own “style”–there are many, many examples out there on the internet! Scott KG5ZES is the primary net control for this net and recommends (but does not require) NetLogger.

  • Emergency Radio Services Net

*On hiatus until further notice …

The Emergency Radio Services Net is called every Thursday evening at 7:30 p.m. local time on the Caprock Intertie frequencies (444.200, +5 MHz, 88.5 PL Tone in the Amarillo area).  This net is formal and will serve as a traffic net and training exercise for those amateur radio operators interested in assisting local entities during emergencies.
