About VHF / HF Nets I like to check in to.
Amateur radio VHF / HF nets are an “on-the-air” gathering of amateur radio operators that convene on a regular schedule and specific frequency, and are organized for a particular purpose, such as relaying messages, discussing a common topic of interest, in severe weather (for example, during a Skywarn activation), emergencies, or simply as a regular gathering of friends for conversation.
Net lengths vary from only a few minutes to several hours for DX and maritime nets. Some nets are “roll call” only, while others have comments from check ins. Informal sessions may precede and/or follow some nets.
Nets are a great opportunity for the amateur radio operator to test their equipment and improve their familiarity with radio operations. They are also great places for the new operator to key up and get over their mic fright.
