The 220 at 2:20

Sundays at 2:20 PM (CDT)

Come join us for a comfortable Sunday afternoon rag-chew on the 220 at 2:20 Net! This is a weekly Sunday afternoon net. You do not have to be a club member to participate. This net is named because of its start time of 2:20 PM, Central Time and held on the 220 MHz Amateur radio band. We have check-ins from local, national & international stations via Echolink. There is no hard format, and topics of discussion vary. 

Please join us and spend part of your Sunday afternoons with us. It's always a good time! 

Hosted by a variety of great hams.

Don't forget Echolink! (WM9W-R, Node 218858) 


The Nightcrawlers Net

At midnight... every night! (CDT)

Join us on the Nightcrawlers Net! All are welcome! We like to think of ourselves as the first Net of the day in Chicago. This Net is held daily/nightly (depending on your perspective) on our repeater starting at 12:00 midnight. This is an informal round table net that has an open discussion format. It can last a half-hour, or into the wee hours of the morning. Discussions range from informative, serious to silly, humorous, and you also get "what happened on-this-day in history".

So, if you're up at that time, or just battling insomnia, why not turn on your radio and enjoy some company?! Just another way for us to make amateur radio fun!! Come on out and join our Guide to the Other Side in lively conversation, and hang out with a great number of returning Nightcrawlers. (Where everybody knows your call sign. la la) Join us to see what crazy topics are up for discussion, take a stab at trivia, or just rag-chew.

Hosted by: John Plecki - KD9BYW, from Studio A, on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays; Joe Russo - KD9EJX, from Studio B at the Red Skelton studios, on Mondays and Thursdays; and a surprise guest host on Tuesdays. On-this-day in history is provided by Laura Plecki - KD9EID, almost every night.

We also feature a RAIN report from the archives, every Wednesday night. (Sometimes you can even catch the RAIN reports' own Hap Holly (KC9RP) joining in on the Nightcrawlers' fun.)

And don't forget about Echolink! (WM9W-R,  Node 218858)

Please contact Steve Hill - KB9DSQ, our Net Controller Coordinator, if you are interested in being a Guest Net Controller for any of our Nets.
