The Voice of Amateur Radio in the Bayou Region  


Dedicated to Ham Radio
Serving Our Communities


Monday Night Social NETS

The Thibodaux Amateur Radio Club sponsors a Monday Night Social Net on one of it's W5YL two meter repeaters on the second, fourth, and  fifth (when applicable) Monday of each month at 7:00PM (19:00). Consult our Google CALENDAR for the actual dates.

The primary repeater hosting our nets is the 147.390+ (tone 114.8) in Gray, LA. Our back-up repeater is 147.300+ (tone114.8) in Theriot, LA..

We conduct an OPEN NET: You do not have to be a club member to check in and participate! All appropriately licensed amateur radio operators are indeed welcome!!

If you are interested in becoming a Net Control Operator for any of these nets, feel free to contact us at [email protected]. Volunteering as a Net Control Operator is a good opportunity to develop (or hone) skills of both the new and seasoned operator alike!

Thursday Night ARES NETS

Our organization partners with ARRL's ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Service) for their emergency communication operations after disasters.

In doing so, we also host their ARES Net at 8:00PM (20:00) on every Thursday night until further notice. Consult our Google CALENDAR for the actual dates.

Once again, the primary repeater is 147.390+ (tone 114.8) in Gray, LA, and the back up repeater is 147.300+ (tone 114.8) in Theriot, LA.

At present, this is an OPEN NET: You do not need to be an ARES member to participate, but this is subject to change at any time, with or without notice.
