  The 20-meter Transcontinental Net. The 20-meter ARMS Net meets every morning except Sunday at 14.3075 MHz from 1500 to 1700Z (1400 to 1600Z, during DST). That is 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time, 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Mountain Time, 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Central Time, and 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon Eastern Time. As each station checks in, it is assigned a number. Members from all over North America, as well as occasional overseas members, check in.

After a half hour of taking early-bird checkins, the net control station opens the net. The net control station calls on stations in the order in which they checked in. Stations may continue to check into the net at any time throughout the two hours of the net operation.

Checkins share prayer concerns, give updates about ongoing activities and often give short scripture verses. Members may have information or traffic for other members.

Checkins who are unable to stick around for their turn may request "short time," that is to take their turn right away. Overseas stations, missionaries, and mobile stations have priority and may take their turns at any time.

The net control stations for each day of the week are:

Monday - Mike Rafferty, K7PTL, Stevensville, Mt
Tuesday - Jerry Burns, K1GUP, Carmel, ME
Wednesday - Frank Brodale, AGØM, Cherokee, IA
Thursday - Denis Parker, WD4ACH, Knoxville, Tennessee
Friday -
Open: Freeflight
Saturday - 1st half=Frank Brodale AG0M, Cherokee, IA  2nd half=Dean Albertson, K0TVJ, Mesa, AZ
