About Us

Ham radio operators help out in all kinds of emergencies. They pass communications in and out of every kind of disaster area that you can imagine. Earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods and anything that Mother Nature can deliver at her worst.

We also pass messages to and from members of the Armed Forces all over the world. Amateur radio operators help to control crowds during parades and many special events. We also help local police departments
direct traffic when there is an accident or any other reason that a street might be closed.

There are several organizations in the ham community that help out in these times. ARES & RACES are the most prominent.
We talk to each other all over the world. That way we can find out how each one of our lives differ, and also how we are all actually the same. With the same goals and dreams. Most people find out that they have a lot in common, no matter where they live.
Most hams belong to what is known as a Net. This is a group of amateur radio operators that get together at a scheduled time to check in with a control operator. This is a type of practice to keep every one up to date on traffic handling (passing messages ). Nets also help to pass traffic all over the world. They also help out in times of emergency. In cases of fire, accidents or any other type of emergency where communications are
important.
One of the largest nets is on 40 meters at 7268.50 &
75 meters at 3970 MHz simultaneously. This is the Noon Time Net. If you have the capabilities please stop by and visit. I hope that I might have enticed you to join the " Hobby Of The Hams."

The Noon Time Net
officially begins at 12:00 noon pacific time 365 days a year. Clyde (AA7WC) generally starts taking early check-ins at 9:30 am. That way we have a little time to visit with everyone so we can become better acquainted with each other.
