We have two weekly nets on VE7RXZ (147.220 MHz, +0.600 MHz, T100.0 Hz).

  • Tuesday Mornings at 09:30 local time
  • Thursday Evening at 19:30 local time

We welcome hams from any location to check in with us.

Winlink P2P messages can also be sent to VA7FI on 144.970 MHz at any time during the week and will be acknowledged on the Thursday evening net. See the Winlink How-to for more information.

Our net manager is Patrick (VA7FI). Marc (VE7TBP) and Steve (VA7SMI) also rotate as regular net controllers with Robert (VE7RBE) helping out from time to time.

Here's is our Net Script
