Panhandle ARC Nets

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.


Morning 2M Net Control Info

Volunteers needed for net control for our fun, informal Morning 2 Meter net!  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.”

Current Net Control Schedule:

Mon — Ed K5KBV

Tues — Kim WK5X

Wed — Robert WR9B

Thur — Melinda KG5NWD

Fri — Scott KG5ZES

Alternate — David KG5JLD

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.
