Welcome to AmRRON West. Please use the Western Division Znet to facilitate testing and during our nets.
AmRRON West is the entire western portion of the United States including Alaska and Hawaii.
There are several regional and local nets for you to participate in click here.
The CSRG net, pronounced Sea Surge (Cascasdia Subduction Response Group) was created in early 2017 to respond to the “Big One” earthquake which scientist claim can happen any time now. Click here for the CSRG page and to sign up for emails about the nets. However, the CSRG net has also been activated for large fires and political uprisings. Since its inception CSRG members have trained hard and have learned a lot. To that end we have established the following schedule.
Every 2nd and 4th Tuesday at 7:30 PM Pacific time on 3.588 USB using FLDIGI we have our regular practice nets. Experience in FLDIGI, FLMSG, FLAMP, FSQ, WinLink and all the modes and speeds is important. These are directed nets which means that users must always allow the NCS to respond after each of your transmissions. This allows for efficient use of every-ones time. When using FLAMP do not give a report unless asked to do so.
Please check this page a couple days in advance of the normal nets as you will find instructions on what to expect for the upcoming net. Each net will be different with emphasis on being proficient in several digital modes.
Persistent Presence Net
We have been running a persistent net since October or November of 2018. The schedule is in the downloadable PDF below. This net has enabled us to reliably make national contacts on a daily basis. Please join us. The more the better our network!
gARIM & Winlink
For now we will stay parked on our normal SOI frequencies unless there is a need due to QRM or a real world situation. In that case please use FSQCALL ,FLDIGI, and/or JS8 on our normal AmRRON frequencies to coordinate gARIM & Winlink traffic as shown below to make room on the waterfall.
gARIM is up 1 khz
Winlink dial is down 1 khz
When using JS8CALL please keep all traffic including HB’s (beacons) above 1800 on the waterfall.

Just a couple quick observations and recommendations.
As usual digital modes will greatly outshine voice modes. So don’t get discouraged if you don’t hear anyone on SSB voice.
TREX isn’t about checking into a Net. It’s about passing message traffic. Have a statrep ready, and understand how an abbreviated statrep works.
The object ISN’T to collect as much traffic as you can, instead the focus is on getting the message to its intended destination.
During the scheduled Nets, please turn off all Beacons, Heartbeats and Auto Responses.
