A “net” is an on-air meeting of ham radio operators at a regularly scheduled timeand frequency.
LARC sponsors two weekly nets:
- LARC Net - Tuesday's at 7:00 pm, N4LNR Club Repeater,146.625 -94.8
- Caldwell Amateur Radio Emergency Service (CARES) Net, Sunday's at 9:00 pm, KG4BCC repeater, 147.330 +141.3
Nets can be formal, with agendas and specific procedures to be followed (traffic nets and public service nets for example), or they can be informal like many local
area nets where hams just get together to talk - frequently called Rag ChewNets. Nets are generally open to all radio amateurs.
