2014 field day.

The American Radio Relay League (ARRL) has a wealth of information for prospective licensees and those interested in upgrading to a higher classification.

We have an on-going event on Wednesday evenings at 1900-1930hrs which is our NARA Net on those frequencies you see on the bottom of every page. This is where amateurs can join a net and talk about radio and other topics.

Here is the nara net script for net control.
