Information on Packrat Nets, Beacons, and Repeaters
The Pack Rats initiated VHF nets on Monday night the first year the club was formed. The nets are now conducted on Monday and Tuesday nights of each week. The nets are open to all radio amateurs. The purpose of the nets is to promote activity and share information of a common interest to the VHF community. You do not have to be a member of the club to participate in any of the Pack Rat nets!
