Club Events

Kings County Amateur Radio Club Net

The KCARC operates a VHF net on 147.180 MHz every Monday night at 19:00 local.

The net is currently on summer hiatus and will return in September.

The net is currently on hiatus until we have a slate of controllers to rotate through. If you are interested in being a net controller, please contact us. If you are not sure how to be a net controller, no problem, we have a sample script for you!

The net operators use the club call-sign VE1LD in honour of long time club member Wes Veale, who held the call-sign prior to becoming a silent key.

Please feel free to check-in as soon as the operator has completed announcements, called in mobile stations and opened up the net for general check-ins. If you have club or other special announcements for the net please inform the operator as soon as he/she asks for further announcements. Suggestions for Net Topics are also welcomed.
