Weekly Net

We have a weekly net on our primary repeater system N6SBC at 147.315 + 94.8 Hz (Details including our South County Repeaters) every Thursday evening (with some holiday exceptions) at 1930 hours.

On even numbered Thursdays, we have our net IRLP / Echolink linked. You may contact us via the Western Reflector-IRLP: 9257 / Echolink *DCF-ARC* (Emcomm Nets) 336037 and not directly to our repeater. We typically connect to the reflector 30 minutes early and leave it active for the full hour.

Odd numbered Thursdays, our net is not linked to the Western reflector and only one station (IRLP or Echolink) can link into our repeater.
