ARTS Club Sponsored Weekly Nets

There are several weekly ARTS Club nets we sponsor,  2 Meter Retiree, 2 Meter Club and a 2 Meter SSB. The purpose of these nets is primarily for amateurs to get to know one another better and by providing a forum for the exchange of information. These nets are open to all amateurs; you DO NOT have to be a member to check in. 

In June the nets change - See below  


The weekly Retiree Net of the ARTS club is held every Wednesday at 09:30 a.m. EDT / EST on our W4CN Club Repeater; 147.180 MHz + 600 KHz offset PL 79.7.

The weekly Club Net of the ARTS club is held every Wednesday night at 8:30 p.m. EDT / EST on our W4CN Club Repeater; 147.180 MHz + 600 KHz offset PL 79.7.
