Return to Local Nets


The Southeast Tennessee Amateur Radio net is the longest running VHF net in the tri-state area.

Although the net was originally intended  for the Cleveland club members to keep up with each other between meetings, it has since grown to cover several counties. When the tropo conditions are right, we’ve even gotten check-ins from Alabama, central Georgia, Kentucky and central South Carolina!

STAR net meets the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Thursday night at 8:30 PM (01:30 GMT) on the 147.180 (Two-Meter WD4DES) repeater. The 3rd Thursday night coincides with the monthly Bradley County ACS training, which tends to occupy most of the usual net controllers. If you would like to act as an alternate net control during this week, we would love to hear from you.

Likewise, the STAR Net is not usually held on Thanksgiving, nor when Thursday falls on a major holiday.
