Welcome to the World of Ham Radio Relay!

Daytime Region 7 Traffic Net (DRN7)

As a part of the Western Relay Network (WRN), the DRN7 is a group of Amateur (Ham) Radio stations scattered throughout the 7th Region, affiliated with the National Traffic System (NTS) and the Radio Relay International System (RRI).
Their purpose is the timely passing of written radio messages (radiograms) via amateur radio, into, out of and within the 7th Region area - a part of the System's commitment to the citizens of this country. The net meets twice daily on 3925 kHz or 7235 kHz at
0915 PT/1715 UTC and 1515 PT/2315 UTC 7 days a week - 365 days a year. Early check-ins 15 minutes before these times.

Member stations checking in are expected to monitor the net and handle traffic listed for their section. Visitors are always welcome!!!
