Panhandle ARC Nets
- 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. 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.
Current Net Control Schedule:
- Mon — Melinda KG5NWD
- Tues — Ed K5KBV
- Wed — Robert WR9B
- Thur — Kim WK5X
- Fri — Scott KG5ZES
- Alternate — William KG5QNJ
Volunteers are taken at any time for net control slots – contact Ed K5KBV at (806) 683-5603 to get set up. We have had a lot of interest and participation — the net is a great way to share and gain experience in operating protocols 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! Ed K5KBV is the primary net control for this net and recommends (but does not require) NetLogger.
- Emergency Radio Services Net
*On hiatus until 444.20 repeater finds a new “home”
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.
Local Area Nets
- Golden Spread Amateur Information Net — GAIN
The weekly GAIN net is held every Tuesday evening at 6:30 p.m. on the Hutchinson County 444.300 WiresX repeater. Check in and enjoy fellowship with our friends in the Fritch/Dumas/Borger area. This net is a great opportunity to exercise the WiresX capability of your Yaesu HT’s or Mobile radios so equipped. Remember to leave a 3-5 second delay after keying up and also before releasing mic key at end of transmission.
Thanks to Charlie, W5CEH, et. al., any amateur radio operator with an analog radio can also participate in this net — tune to 146.58 Simplex and you will be linked through Charlie’s WiresX node to this digital net. If you do have WiresX capability, tune to 444.300 (digital).
