Welcome to the Illinois SideBand Net Home Page


One of the reasons that we, as Amateur Radio Operators, are allowed to enjoy our hobby is the fact that Amateur Radio has always provided an invaluable source of skilled communicators in times of national or local emergencies. Many Amateurs feel strongly obligated to maintain their efficiency in message handling so they will be ready when the need arises.

The objective of the Illinois SideBand Net is to provide Public Service, Message Handling Experience, and Group Fellowship. The primary goal of the Net is the expeditious movement of all legal traffic into, out of, and throughout the Illinois Section. All stations, with or without traffic, are always welcome to check into the Net.
