NETS ON THE WORC SYSTEM 12-19-2015 Daily 6:05 PM The Northwest Oregon Traffic and Training net is one you are most likely to hear on the WORC repeaters. This net is on every day of every week of every month at 6:05 PM local time. This net is a local contact point for the National Traffic System, which lets Hams send radiograms to anyone in the country at no charge. Handling routine messages during this net provides participants with practice handling message traffic, preparing them for emergency conditions when Ham Radio is the only way left to send long distance messages. Contact the net control operator to learn how you can participate in this activity. Northwest Oregon Traffic and Training Net  YL Net Monday 8 PM This net is for the Young Ladies.
