AMATEUR RADIO BOATER NETS
NORTHWESTERN AREA
Several northwest amateur radio nets favoring boaters will be available during the summer months OF 2010.
The primary VHF net in the southern British Columbia area is the British Columbia Boaters' Net which operates at 1700 PDT. This year it will be using several repeaters linked together for more extensive coverage. The main repeater frequencies will be 146.68 MHz (Chemainus); 146.82 (Campbell River); 146.70 (Sayward); 146.88 (Woss Lake); and 146.94 (Port McNeil). The VHF net is followed by an HF net on 3.855 MHz at 1800 PDT. Detailed information about the nets can be obtained from their website at: http://www.bcbn.ca

The major VHF net in the Puget Sound area is th Puget Sound Boaters' Net which operates daily at 0747 PDT, The net utilizes the Western Wasshington Repeater Association repeater on Gold Mountain on the Kitsap Peninsulawith a frequency of 146.620 MHz. Offset is minus 600 with input at 146.020 MHz and a tone access of 103.5. The repeater has excellent coverage of Puget Sound and up into the southern San Juan Islands area. Primary net control operator is K7PAN , Chris Warner.

In the morning there are two HF nets:
The Northwest Boaters Net operates each morning of the year on 3.865 MHz beginning at 0800 PT (local time) with informal contacts and checkins. Official roll call begins at 0800 PT. Net control is managed by N7XT located near Port Hadlock, Washington on the Olympic Peninsula area. Coverage ranges from the California northern border to Prince Rupert, BC. The net has a webpage at: http://www.toandos.com/nwbn.html

The Great Northern Boaters Net meets during the summer months on 3.870 MHz beginning at 0730 PDT with a net control station (KL0YC)located near Ketchikan and at 0800 the control shifts to a control station (VE7KLU) near Sidney, BC. At 0830 PDT, KL0YC moves to 7.280 MHz (or alternatively 7.285 MHz). At 0830 PDT, VE7KLU assumes control on the 7.28 MHz frequency. Between the two control stations, excellent coverage is obtained from central California to western Alaska. Further detail can be obtained on the Northwest Boaters Net webpage noted above. A net webpage is being prepared.

Background music is "Act Naturallly" by Buck Owens; sequencer is unknown. We knew Buck in bakersfield when he was just getting started. The Midi background music on this site has been downloaded from various Midi sites. Most of the pages utilize selections composed and sequenced by Deb Ackley and originally obtained from the MIDI Haven website which no longer presents her sequences. A few other sequences have been taken from public access sites. If you are a Midi composer/ sequencer, and you find one or more of your files on any of the pages on this domain, and for whatever reason you would like it removed from the page, or if you would like to be acknowledged on the page, email me and let me know at the address at the bottom of this page.

If you are a guest viewer and are having a problem with the Midi format musical background, you might try "vanBascoes Midi Player" which you can obtain (free for introductory version)
by going to: http://www.vanBasco.com
