A 'Net' is a regularly-scheduled communications network and is a great way to practice, become proficient with your equipment and make contact with like-minded patriots in your area.
AmRRON Members have access to a live Chatroom during the Schedule Nets.
Once you create a Chatzy account, use your AmRRON member password to access the AmRRON chatroom.
If you can’t check in on the radio, or you are listening on a shortwave radio, you can check in electronically using the Net Check In Form.

NOTE: Wed evening (IN THE UNITED STATES). So, technically, very early morning of Thurs., Greenwich, England.
*The Wednesday evening nets will have one national Net Control Operator, as we used to have. This will require stations to act as relays and step up to assume ‘Assistant Net Control’ duties to help facilitate getting the NWOTW distributed, and relaying information throughout the nets. The primary purpose of the Wednesday evening net will be to focus on getting information distributed to the network, with less focus on ‘check ins’. The information to be passed may be in the form of NWOTW, as well as SITREPs, SPOTREPs, messages, and other traffic.
The Wednesday nets will be a less formal, but very important, practice net which might simulate a real-world disaster situation where more formal Net Control Stations have not yet been coordinated or present.
