Nets and Meeting Updates

With many club events and meetings being postponed, canceled and modified due to the Covid-19 orders, Sierra Foothills ARC members are connecting with each other via radio nets and the online meetings. The 2 meter and 70 cm repeaters have been very busy with traffic throughout the day. During this time of social distancing and sheltering in place, drop in, say hello and keep in touch with your SFARC friends!

W6EK 2 Meter Nets

Check in for the latest club news and take a guess on the trivia question each Thursday evening at 7:30 pm for the Club Net, first and third Wednesdays for the Elmer Tech Net and every morning from 7:30 am until 10 am for the Coffee Break Net. Great to have so many folks joining in on the fun!!
