The WØTLM weekly Tri-Lakes net is a fun, general topic net that is perfect for beginners and old Elmers alike.

Purpose: The general purpose of this net is to provide a meeting place for Tri-Lakes area radio amateurs and to handle traffic for the WØTLM organization. A close secondary purpose is to help local operators develop their on-air skills and to provide educational information to participants about Amateur Radio-related topics.
Participants: All radio amateurs are welcome to check-in. The net provides an opportunity to actively practice formal net operations and procedures in preparation for emergency operations.
Net Control: All amateurs are invited to take a turn as net control for the Tri-Lakes net. It’s easy, fun, and great practice! Participate in a few nets first, review the information linked below, and when you’re ready to sign up for a Monday night with our Net Manager, Stephen KZØQ.
