Weekly CAARAnet

Welcome to the Cape Ann Amateur Radio Association’s Sunday night net, CAARAnet information page.

Every Sunday night at 9 PM local time our club holds CAARAnet on our club’s 2 meter repeater frequency, 145.130 MHz with a PL tone of 107.2. Our radio net is an informal net and we use it for disseminating club news, A.R.R.L. bulletins and anything else related to Amateur Radio.

We also use this net for emergency communication purposes as we make sure that our repeater and Echolink equipment are running properly and we have adequate receive coverage for the Cape Ann Area. You can reach the net via Echolink by connecting to W1GLO-R. That will connect you to our Cape Ann repeater on 145.130 MHz.

This net also keeps our club members radio net training fresh as we have a rotating group of club members who act as net control operators.

Every Sunday the net starts off with local radio check ins, then Echolink check ins, then each check in gets their time on the air to chat about Ham Radio.

CAARAnet is a relaxed net and we welcome all Amateur Radio operators from far and wide to check into our net. So, if you a CAARA club member, a new ham or a ham visiting Cape Ann, please join us on our Sunday night net.

If you have any questions or comments about CAARANET please contact Dean Burgess KB1PGH, CAARANET Committee Chairman, at dburg101 @ aol dot com.
