W5WX “Morning Two Meter”
Any and every licensed amateur radio operator is welcome to take a morning break, grab a favorite morning beverage and check-in to W5WX “Morning Two Meter” on 146.940 weekdays — 10:00 am until 11:00 am. NetLogger can be used for logging and “Almost Instant Messaging.” Join the fun and volunteer for a morning Net Control spot – call Ed K5KBV at (806) 683-5603.
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 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 repeater.
*NEW* Emergency Radio Service Net — “ERS Net”
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 brand-new 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.
