In amateur radio lingo, a "net" is just a directed meeting on the air. It is unrelated to the internet, networking, or other meanings of the word "net". When you hear net just think of a meeting via radio. The person running the meeting is referred to as "Net control", and it is the job of that individual to direct traffic through the duration of a net.
Net meetings are also formalized during special events and times of emergency, to organize station traffic on the air and prevent chaos.
The K9IU Weekly Net meets on Monday nights at 1900 local time. The net is held on the K9IU 2M Repeater, 146.940MHz (-) pl 136.5. All stations are welcome and invited to participate in this semi-directed net. The K9IU net is run by K9IU members, including students.
During the net we cover club announcements, upcoming events, play the AR NewsLine report, and swap ideas and chit chat after the Net. Amateur radio net meetings are a great time to periodically test your operating setup.
