Here I’ve listed a number of Ham radio nets I have joined. As you can tell, I’ve been on a lot of different nets! On many of these nets I am a regular, save for having to rotate for conflicts. My longest and most regular net I am on is the Northern Virginia Traffic Net. I am also Net Control on Wednesdays for the Eastern Panhandle Traffic Net.
