IRLP - Keeping the Radio in Amateur Radio

A number of people were asking for information regarding when nets are run on the various IRLP reflectors.  This information has been extracted from the IRLP Nets list on Yahoo Groups.  Please note that I am assuming all times to be UTC, as this is not specified in the email.  If your net is run on local time, please let me know and I'll make the necessary adjustments.  New listings are in boldface.
If you run a net which isn't listed here, by all means, please let me know.  And if you're considering setting up a net, please contact the reflector owner before announcing your intentions.
