Nets for Echolink, D-Star, and D-Rats -- UALR Ham Radio Club Exam Info -- Plus Other Files


To return to the previous page, press the BACK BUTTON on your web browser. This page, and the appropriate files, were last updated March 1, 2024.

Originally designed as a page for Echolink Nets, courtesy of The Millennium Net (the page was started in March, 2006...the net went QRT (offline) as of August, 2020) I have decided to update the page with an information overview, and just links for these files.

Note: For information on upcoming amateur radio license exam sessions at the University Of Arkansas At Little Rock (UALR), sponsored by the UALR Ham Radio Club, in Little Rock, Arkansas, click here. The information file was last updated Feb. 29, 2024.


For the net list, I've decided to go with an Excel Spreadsheet Only (it was last updated as of the date above). For items 4-8 below, you will need either Microsoft Excel, LibreOffice, or OpenOffice to view/print the Excel Files.

For much of the United States, Standard Time is from the first Sunday in November to the Second Sunday in March, with Daylight Savings Time otherwise. For a Users Guide for the list, choose item 8 below. For a guide on converting UTC time to a different time zone, click here. UTC Time is based on the time at the Greenwich Meridian in England.

Thanks to Gary, VA3GDZ, for the original net list spreadsheet...for the rest of the items, you will need an appropriate PDF Viewer to view/print the files. With some of the files, the last update is noted at the top of the particular file, or noted below.


Lastly, another hobby that I'm involved with, square dancing, had a post from a publication called ''The Sets In Order'' back in March, 1966...on ''15 Ways To Kill Your Square Dance Club''. I've modified this for ''15 Ways To Kill Your Ham Radio Club''. Obviously, I do NOT recommend doing ANY of these...but clubs (no matter the hobby) who have these (or similar items) going on, the sad fact is that the future existence of their club...and the associated hobby...is in grave danger. You can obtain that file here.

Thanks to the acquisition of a SharkRF OpenSpot 4 Pro, I can do D-Star, NXDN, Fusion, and other modes. Echolink, CQ100, and D-Rats, are accessed with their separate programs.
