Northern Nevada Preppers HAM Radio Net - On The Air Meeting

For all the newly licensed amateur radio operators out there, Congratulations!!!

We are very excited to announce the Northern Nevada Prepper's Group Radio Net. We have gained approval from the Wide Area Data Group ( to use their UHF/VHF repeaters that serve our area.

This net will be held each Wednesday evening at 2000 hours local time (8:00pm) and this is a reoccurring event for our group.

The Northern Nevada Prepper’s Group Radio Net is provided to help you become familiar with your radio equipment or test out new equipment by participating in our on the air discussions of family emergency preparedness, general prepper topics and radio use and theory. You will get to check in with Northern Nevada Preppers Group Members and other HAM radio operators in the Northern Nevada Area. This HAM net will help you learn how to communicate in times of emergency when conventional communications are not working. We are a family oriented group who’s goal is to share the skills necessary to help you and your family prepare for disasters, either man made or natural and to promote a self-reliant lifestyle.

We will be using the linked repeater system maintained by the Wide Area Data Group on the following frequencies:

Freq. PL Offset Location

    Twas excellent. Glenda's presentation on children's bug-out bags was very comprehensive and highly informative. Well researched and presented. Another well done to Glenda! And of course Rob and Ken were in fine form. And I want to thank everyone for their congratulation on my achieving my General Class Amateur Radio license. As usual, I have a few thoughts on the subject, in addition to those I stated during the meet. They are in the discussion area.
