GSARC SIMPLEX nets

General News

The Grand Strand Amateur Radio Club has started a series of SIMPLEX radio nets in order to train the emergency procedures that would be needed in a time of degraded communications  operations.  As part of this training, bimonthly 2 meter SIMPLEX nets will be conducted,  at 10:30 AM on the first Saturday of each month   The net will begin on the GSARC Conway repeater (145.110 MHz/85.4) and then move to the chosen simplex frequency.  All amateur radio operators are invited to participate.  We will also periodically conduct both 6 meter and 10 meter nets.  These will also begin on the 145.110 repeater and then switch to the selected frequency.  These nets have no set schedule but will be based on both interest level and available dates.  Please refer to the Events Calendar on this website to see net dates once they are finalized.
