Special Christmas Net

Hello SARC

During today's fun filled net it was suggested we have an afternoon quick net get together on Christmas Day.


Please join us on our special Scarborough Amateur Radio Club Christmas Day net starting at 2:30 in the afternoon on the 146.940 VE3TOR repeater.

This is a special invitation going out to all radio amateurs to take a break and offer each other best wishes on Christmas Day.

Our usual Thursday evening net will still go ahead as usual.

For some fun radio Christmas cheer join us on Friday afternoon.

SARC Net frequency change

Hello SARC

We have moved our Sunday morning and Thursday evening 10 meter nets to 2 meters. We have graciously been given access to the VE3TOR repeater to use for our Scarborough Amateur Radio Club nets. Many thanks to the kind operators of this repeater. Our new frequency is 146.940 with a tone of 103.5 Hz and an offset of -600. This repeater is located central to the Scarborough area and should be easily accessible to our members.

A few items must be noted.

  • Proper radio etiquette is required at all times.
  • A log of our activities should be kept for the repeater operators so they can update their coverage data.
  • There is a 1 minute talk timer on the repeater, so we ask that you keep you transmissions brief and to not exceed more than 2 cycles. This will also speed up our already lively discussions and allow more to participate. We will monitor our old frequency for the next few nets to guide everyone to the new repeater.

This move will open up our nets to those without HF resources and participation can be done with an inexpensive hand held radio. The net schedule has not changed.

73 Everyone, I Iook forward to hearing you on 2 meters!

10m beacon and nets

Thanks to Rod VE3SOY the 10 metre CW beacon is back on the air. The frequency is 28.2653 MHz.

Bill VE3PA and Bert VE3NR have been conducting a rag-chew 10m net on Thursday nights at 7 PM local time on 28.730 MHz USB, and on Sunday morning, CW from 10:00 to 10:30 then USB phone. Check in any time and say hello.

Update: the beacon is currently off the air for repairs.

Checking into the ARES Nets is your best easy way to do that on VHF and UHF.
