On-Air Nets

Pasco ARES Weekly Net

The Pasco County ARES Net meets on-the-air each Wednesday night at 7:30 PM local time. Frequencies change from week to week according to the following schedule. The pattern of this schedule has changed, effective May 2017. We will continue with the previous practice of alternating between the 146.670 and 145.330 repeaters in New Port Richey and Land O’Lakes, respectively.

On Wednesdays that have EVEN dates, we will use the 146.670 New Port Richey repeater.

On Wednesdays that have ODD dates, we will use the 145.330 New Port Richey repeater.

The Pasco County Amateur Radio Service wishes to thank the Gulf Coast Amateur Radio Club for the use of their repeaters.

We always have openings in the schedule for NCS operators. If you are interested in assuming the NCS duties for any of the upcoming weeks, please contact…
