PCARS recommends: Tri-County Traffic Training Net

Formal message handling, or Traffic Handling, is the oldest specialty in ham radio and one of the most rewarding. If you’re interested in getting involved with emergency communications, this skill is invaluable

Tri-County Traffic Training Net not only handles messages all over Northeast Ohio, they’ll train you how it’s done. All licensed amateurs are welcome. See their website for training materials and more details.



Portage County Digital Net

the digital net runs at 7:30 on the first and third Wednesdays of the month, with the first Wednesday meeting on the K8IV repeater, and the third Wednesday being on 80 meters at about 3.584 MHz.
This net is open to all hams and it is a great opportunity to develop your familiarity with and ability to use the soundcard based digital modes.
