Amateur Radio Operators periodically run "nets" on designated days and on pre-determined frequencies. The "nets" are typically oriented around a specific topic (eg. Emergency Traffic Handling, Disaster Scenarios, Digital Modes, etc.) Some of the nets below are consistantly running high-turnout nets and are designed around ARES scenarios. Plan on checking into these nets (or at least listening to them) when time permits as they are helpful to ARES personnel.
