About Us

The World Radio Network and World Friendship Net Mission Statement.

 The purpose of these Nets is to promote Friendships around the world through daily communication using Amateur Radio.   To foster the ham radio arts and most of all have fun while doing it 

 We want to thank Kent Johnson/W7AOR, of the Nevada Amateur Radio Repeaters Incorporated(NARRI), for the use of their systems for these nets.


The World Radio Network and World Friendship Nets are hosted by NARRI on the World Conference Server on Echolink.

NARRI provides and maintains the various repeaters that run the WRN/WFN System.
This starts with the Western Reflector which is one of many reflectors on the Echolink system. NARRI Western Reflector Channels 0, 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 and 9 are  channels that integrated with Echo link Conference Servers; this means  those IRLP Reflector channels are digitally linked to a unique Echo Link Conference thus allowing nodes on Echo Conferences to talk to nodes on specific IRLP reflector channels.  
The Western Reflector has 10 channels (as do all reflectors).              
The WRN/WFN systems are hosted on channel 1.
The NARRI web site (narri.org) has a list of the various repeaters (7 in Vegas)
The NARRI site also has a list of the channel assignments on the reflector.
Channel 4 is the Hi-Gate conference.
The Las Vegas repeaters are on channel 4 most of the time. 

(447.000on Blue Diamond is primary)
They switch automatically to channel 1 twice a day for the WRN/WFN nets. 

This includes the UHF repeater in Pahrump. (449.750)
There is a VHF repeater in Pahrump that is manually switched to various IRLP nodes.

There is considerable cost to provide all these activities. 

Consider donating to NARRI. See the NARRI website.


A Message From The Manager:
Greetings from Michigan.
Most of us have opinions that we feel passionately about when it comes to politics or religion.
There are many forums where those topics are appropriate and even encouraged.
However, the World Radio Network and the World Friendship Net are not included  in those forums.
It is our desire to keep the *WORLD* Conference a fun place for ham radio operators along with family and friends who may be listening.              
Ham radio should be a place where we can avoid controversy and drama        
and it is important that we all work together to make sure the *WORLD* Conference is free of political and religious confrontation.
While I respect the right of everyone to have their own views on these subjects,
as Net Manager I must insist that those views be kept off the air the *WORLD* Conference.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. 73 for now.

Lee DeRosa Net Manager/ *WORLD* Echolink Conference/IRLP 9251.
