The SADRC Fusion Net meets every Wednesday evening at 7:30 PM Central Time.  The purpose of the net is to serve as a forum for technical discussions, to communicate information, and to develop rapport and fellowship within the amateur community.  Our format is a topic and technical net to solicit your thought and gain participation.

Our network currently operates from the following areas: San Antonio on 146.780, 443.200, 442.750, 147.160, and 441.8125 in Live Oak.

Quick Operating TIPS

Some quick RF/Internet tips for this net: We are an RF and VOIP network which is different than traditional FM repeaters. Due to the nature of the internet and buffering, please observe the following:

  1. Key up and wait ½ second before you start talking. When finished, keep your microphone keyed up for 1 second so your transmission will be not be cut off.
  2. Please leave at least 3-4 seconds (nice and easy) between transmission allowing other stations to break in.


Before we get started on check-ins, are there any general announcements for the group? Are there any net announcements for other repeater groups? (note: anything club related here) Others may have announcements as well.  How about nets from other repeater clubs? Upcoming hamfest, VE testing sites etc. Recognizing other Clubs/repeaters checked in. MINWIS on Monday nights or other nets.
