KBTN Mission

  • To establish and maintain a ready, local network for the transfer of messages through the National Traffic SystemTM network.
  • To provide initial and ongoing training and practice in NTS message handling to local radio amateurs.
  • To provide initial and ongoing training and practice for Net Control Station operators.

Voice Net Info

Voice net: Monday 7:00 pm on 146.850 – 118.8 (Hamaker repeater W7VW)
(this is a combined AUXCOMM/NTS voice net)

Packet Net Info

Packet net: Monday 7:15 pm on 145.050 (HAMAKR and HOGBAK digipeaters W7VW) (packet net is keyboard-to-keyboard)

The following commands are for Kantronix TNCs, other TNCs have similar commands.

cmd: UNPROTO [name] VIA HAMAKR 
cmd: K

You can substitute HOGBAK for HAMAKR if you get a better connection through that digipeater. Net Control will use both during nets. Net control also monitors the 146.850 repeater during packet net if you have any difficulties.

A special thank you to the Klamath Basin Amateur Radio Association W7VW for the use of their repeaters!
