Local HAM nets

Amateur radio is all about talking. Hams like to talk; "nets" are a regular forum to talk about a specific topic on the air.

There are formal emergency nets such as skywarn, and ARES/RACES which handles disasters of all sorts. There are traffic nets, dedicated to passing written messages ("traffic") between hams and non-hams, coordinated as the National Traffic System (NTS) which operates under methods and practices developed over the years by ARRL. Finally, there are informal social nets of all sorts.
