The AuxComm USA Net meets every Thursday evening at 2000 hours local time on the Kan-Okla Intertie System, Sunflower System and Echolink.

The purpose of this net is to improve interoperability for emergency communicators, establish collaboration between emergency communications groups, develop camaraderie between radio operators, grow our knowledge base in methods, modes, and alternatives for emergency communications. Give radio operators the chance to test their equipment for proper operation, and to train in emergency traffic handling.


This is a Directed Net, which means that you should only transmit when directed by Net Control. Please stay on frequency until released by net control. If you must leave before the end of this directed net, notify Net Control that you are closing station. Please key your mic for 2 seconds before speaking to allow for all connected systems to activate.
