Net Information


Montgomery County ARES conducts a weekly training net on Tuesday evenings at 8:00 pm. The purpose of the weekly net is to provide training for amateur radio operators and to test the equipment associated with the Montgomery County ARES network.


The weekly training net is generally conducted on our 2 meter repeater. On the second Tuesday of the month the weekly training net is conducted on our 70 cm repeater. 


In the event of severe weather, Dayton Skywarn utilizes our 2 meter repeater for their net operations. Please listen for the double-beep courtesy tone indicating that Dayton Skywarn net operations are in progress. When Skywarn nets are in progress all Montgomery County ARES nets and other traffic are moved to our 70 cm repeater. 


On the evening of the general membership meeting, there is no training net. The general membership meeting occurs on the last Tuesday of each even numbered month. We invite all amateurs (members and non-members) to attend the meeting at the American Red Cross Dayton Area Chapter Facility, located at 370 West First Street in downtown Dayton.


A brief digital net usually follows the regular net and all are welcome to check in.  Digital nets are conducted using MT63 2000L.
