2 Meter NTS Local Net

The Saguaro NTS Net meets nightly on ham radio at 6:30 P.M. (1830 hrs MST) on the EAARS Repeater Network (Eastern Arizona Amateur Radio Society). EAARS repeaters cover Eastern Arizona clear into new Mexico! You may also use EchoLink on a desktop machine, laptop or smartphone to connect to EAARS via K7EAR-R and check-in. Our purpose is to relay and deliver radiogram message traffic within the Local 2 Meter area.  The Saguaro NTS Net is on VHF two-meters, voice mode, to enable hams with any level of amateur radio license to participate. Pink, K7ILA, and Bill, KC7ZZ, started the Saguaro NTS Net after Field Day (a national ham radio weekend) in June 2009. Many thanks to the Radio Society of Tucson (Randy, KF0X, in particular) for encouraging us to start the net on the K7RST repeater atop Mt. Lemmon, -145.25 (156.7 PL). We moved to the EAARS network in 2010 to reach a wider geographic area, and utilize N7OEM, -146.880 (110.9 PL), as our alternate repeater. Max KI7TIG is net manager. We are always on the lookout for additional net control stations. Hop in and join us!
