The Country Cousins Net was founded in the Fall of 1963 by a small group of amateur radio operators led by Dr. Leroy Harris. The object of the net was to help the less fortunate in their time of need. The net has a great history of doing so throughout the years. When possible the net will strive to continue that tradition. It is also an objective of this net to foster the spirit of good fellowship and high ideals among our members and all amateur radio operators with whom we come in contact.
Our Motto is, "When in need, call a Country Cousin".
There are four sections of the Country Cousins. The Southern Cousins, the Northwest Cousins, the Midwest Cousins and
the Western Cousins. This site is dedicated to the Southern Section.
The Southern Section of the Country Cousins net meets nightly on or near 3970
KHZ at 9:00 PM ET. Any station licensed to operate on this band is welcome to check in...however, to become a full member of the Net, it is necessary for one to check in 4 out of 5 weeks on the same night of the week...when this has been done, your Net Control will give you instructions on obtaining your certificate from the Secretary. There are no dues or assessments required to maintain your membership.
