IRA Nets – see separate page

NEW!!!  After School Net, Coming To IRA Link System Monday:  May 17th at 5:30 PM

A new net is coming to the IRA Link System!  It’s called the After School net, and will occur every Monday at 5:30 PM, beginning Monday: May 17.

The net is primarily geared toward students, ranging from elementary to college-level, and will be oriented toward topics of interest to them.

Both licensed and non-licensed hams are welcome.  In order to  meet FCC legal requirements, any non-ham should check in as a “third party” check-in, and should use the call sign of the ham who is assisting them.  Hams in other age groups will also have an opportunity to check in toward the end of the net.
