The Saratoga Amateur Radio Association has a weekly 2 meter net. Visiting amateur radio operators, as well as Saratoga Amateur Radio Association members, are welcome.

The purpose of the net is to develop experienced amateur radio operators and communicators who can be called upon to assist in an emergency, to verify that everyone's radio is operational and programmed correctly, and to verify that SARA's repeater(s) are available and accessible.

The net is open to everyone regardless of experience. If you can hear us, talk to us.

The net script is publicly available here and may also be downloaded.

The Saratoga Amateur Radio Association also participates in the Silicon Valley Emergency Communications System's (S.V.E.C.S.) weekly net on 146.115 MHz, +, PL 100 on Tuesday nights at 8:00 pm. The net control script for this net is available.
