The net provides a forum for participants to discuss amateur radio topics, ask amateur radio-related questions, and receive advice, information, and guidance from the pool of knowledge and experience of the net participants.  The net is open to all amateurs worldwide and we encourage your participation.  We hope you have a little time on Tuesday evening to check in with us and say hello.


The following is the order of segments of the Tech Net:  preamble, facilitators’ announcements, silent key announcements, hams new to the Tech Net, question and answer segment, swap & shop listings, and general check-ins.  The order of general check-ins is rotated every week.


Every week we choose a topic question and ask it to each participant.

If you have an amateur radio-related topic or survey question that you’d like the net participants to discuss, we’d love to get your suggestions and input.  Please email your topic suggestions to: moc.L1713159941OA@QP1713159941J2BW1713159941. If you prefer that your name/call not be used when we pose your topic to the net, please state so in your email and we’d be glad to respect your anonymity.


If you have an amateur radio-related question or technical issue that you’d like to throw out to the general net for advice, answers, or guidance, you can ask it during the Q&A portion of the net, or you can email it to us in advance and we’ll ask the question to the net on your behalf.  Someone on the net probably has an answer for you.  If you would like to submit a question to the net, please email it to: moc.L1713159941OA@QP1713159941J2BW1713159941.

Also, if you prefer that your name/call not be used when we ask your question on the air, please state so in your email.
