    Local Amateur Radio NETs

    An amateur radio net is an "on radio" gathering of amateur radio operators. A net may be formal or informal. They reoccur at regular intervals on a schedule. A net control operator is the individual presiding over the net that directs whose turn in order may speak. A predetermined topic may be selected or there may be open discussion depending on the type of net. Some nets serve a specific practical purpose while others are merely social. Getting involved in a social net is a quick way to meet other hams and become familiar with the process of repeater or simplex operation.

    Members and other local ham radio operators interested in starting a Plattsmouth Amateur Radio net please visit one of our meetings, formal or weekly informal, and tell us your ideas. Our operational repeater in Omaha Nebraska has excellent coverage. When the Murray repeater is placed back into service this summer that coverage will extend to Union, and Nebraska City.
