Updated Traffic Net Directory Available

The Radio-Relay Traffic Net Database has been updated as of 6/27/2020. Thank you to those who have submitted information to build this database. Since this database is not updated “on-demand”, we need you to submit any information prior to publication. The target dates for publication are: the last week of March, the week prior to Field Day (June), the week prior to Labor Day (August) and the week after Thanksgiving (November). Currently, we will produce this as a PDF document for easy printing. In the future, we are planning to make it available as a searchable online resource. This directory lists active traffic nets in North America, Europe and Oceania, no matter the affiliation. Whether you are a newcomer to traffic handling, or a well-seasoned veteran, this will make it easier to find a net near you that can handle traffic. It is up to you to create or relay messages for the system. The database is sorted first by Area (EU, OC, EAN, CAN, WAN), then by Region, then by State, then by Time (Time Zone is local or Zulu). If a Net Manager is known, then their call and email address are listed. As always, if you see something missing, changed or needs to be deleted please directly email Charles.Hargrove@Radio-Relay.org with the details and not to a mailing list. http://radio-relay.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/TrafficNets.pdf
