Northwest Nevada Hospital Weekly Communicators Net 

Click here to edit subtitle

The purpose of the Northwest Nevada Hospital weekly communicators net is to foster understanding and team work between the Hospitals and Medical Center staff that are amateur radio operators and Amateur Radio Emergency Service members (ARES). To provide an opportunity for the staff and ARES members to become well acquainted with the radio equipment in their hospitals and medical centers. The amateur radio rooms exist to provide emergency communications via amateur radio when regular communications systems are overloaded or fail

How The Net Will Run:

Net control will call for roll by hospitals that have checked into the net before. At the end of the roll call we welcome and encourage visitors from anywhere to check-into the net. You do not have to be a Hospital or Medical center to check into the net as a visitor. This net meets on every Friday  morning at 10:00am pacific time operating on the SNARS repeater system as of Jan  6th 2017.
