WCARES Net

The WCARES net is held every Monday evening on the WCARES repeater system at 7 PM Central time.  Membership is not required to check in.

On the first net of each month, stations are asked to use alternative power (battery, generator, solar etc.) if possible to communicate with the net as an exercise in emergency readiness. However, do not give your power source when checking in by voice.

Third Monday of each month has an Alternet after the regular Monday night net.  This will alternate between simplex, duplex and HF.  Check the WCARES Event calendar or listen on the regular Monday night net to find out where the Alternet will be.

Training Nets.  Periodically, topics of interest will be presented in place of the regular roster call.  These are great opportunities to hear about areas of Amateur Radio you may wish to learn more about.

Early Check-ins are not accepted for this net. However, Winlink check-in over radio is accepted between 6 AM and 6 PM Central on the Monday of the net if you can’t join the net by voice. Learn more about Winlink check-in here.
