FCARC Repeater Net Listings

 

Currently two weekly nets and one monthly net are held on the KB1BSS 146.985 Mhz repeater.

The weekly Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) net and the monthly Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES) net are not FCARC club activities, but the FCARC makes its repeater available for these nets. The KB1BSS repeater has been determined by the State of Massachusetts and the ARRL to be the best repeater to serve the 2-Meter communications needs for ARES, RACES and Skywarn in Franklin County, MA, due to its location and coverage.

If you would like to take a turn as Net Control Station (NCS) for the ARES net, contact Chris Myers, KB1NEK, net manager, at 413-625-0344, or by e-mail, camyers_1@verizon.net.

The weekly FCARC information net, held each Thursday, is less formal and is intended to be an occasion for club members to keep in touch with each other on the air. If you would like to take a turn as Net Control Station (NCS) for the Info net, contact Al, N1AW, net manager, at 413-773-3522, or by e-mail, aswoodhull@yahoo.com

RACES Net First Monday of the Month at 6.45 pm on the 75m band. Look for net control station at 3.930 MHz. If that was not free, tune higher, as far as 3.955, to find place where net control could find a clear frequency.

The Snail Net itself is not conducted on the repeater. It is a slow speed CW practice net on the 80 meter band at 8 p.m. on Sundays and Wednesdays. But a few minutes before the Snail Net begins the net control station will make an announcement on the KB1BSS 2 meter repeater, and after the conclusion of the Snail Net participants usually continue with an informal discussion on the repeater.
