LCARA Weekly Radio Nets

Directed Nets
Operate Differently Then Regular Amateur Radio Use

Join our nets, get on the list of participants, all while getting used to, or practicing how a directed net works.

During times of emergency or when helping during an event, there are protocols that will be different than normal. While our nets are a time to share in general amateur radio conversation, it gives participants a chance to get comfortable talking on the radio.
