The Central Texas Amateur Radio Net

The Central Texas Amateur Radio Net (The Net) is a means of providing the orderly exchange of information via the repeater during training or emergency events. It is important that all participants are familiar with how to check in to "The Net", and the proper etiquette to use during an operating Net.  Here, you will find information on "The Net" operating procedures and the weekly schedule for the current month and who the Net Control Operators are for each week. Included are scripts for Net Control Operators and guidelines for participating in a Weather Net (to be posted in future). During severe weather, a Weather Net will be initiated to coordinate communications with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth and handle radio traffic with and between spotters and the National Weather Service. 

The Central Texas Amateur Radio Net training is held every Thursday night at 8 p.m. on the N5ZXJ (145.130 MHz (-) PL 123.0 Hz) repeater located in Eddie (the W5BEC repeater, at 147.140 MHz (+) PL 123.0 Hz is the backup in the event the N5ZXJ repeater is out of service).  Please join us, everyone is welcome to participate.
