The Radio-Relay Traffic Net Database has been updated as of 6/25/2020.

Thank you to those who have submitted information to build this database. This directory lists active traffic nets in North America, Europe and Oceania, no matter the affiliation. Whether you are a newcomer to traffic handling, or a well-seasoned veteran, this will make it easier to find a net near you that can handle traffic. The database is sorted first by Area (EU, OC, EAN, CAN, WAN), then by Region, then by State, then by Time (Time Zone is local or Zulu). If a Net Manager is known, then their call and email address are listed. As always, if you see something missing, changed or needs to be deleted please email with the details.

Lowndes County Amateur Radio Club is moving their Repeater to a different location. They will have it about five miles west of town and the antenna will be at 600 feet. Tom Ford KC5NMB & John Buckley K5DDT did some checking and the SWR is okay and they hooked a HT with an adapter to the existing antenna and made contacts as far as 50 + miles. Not sure when it will be moved but the Frequency is 146.625 with a 136.5 Tone. We should be able to hit this without and trouble. Frank KF5ETN
