We had a good time at the meeting on Saturday, February 29, 2020 at Arizona Charlies Boulder
We had a number of friends meet for early lunch at the cafe before the meeting.
The meeting was at noon and well attended. We had a demonstration of various Allstar nodes
This was a meet and greet for some hams coming from out of state.
Mike KM4OOC and his wife Sandy, Dick N7RHV, John KI7YRC and Tom AF7J were all there.
Join us next time we get together.
These nets started in 2012 and we are growing strong and continue to grow.
We have a great administration team that keeps everything running smoothly.
Without them we would never be able to put these nets on.
This website is for THE WORLD RADIO NETWORK & WORLD FRIENDSHIP NET.
Thanks to the administration team behind the scenes

We celebrated 6 years on the air in 2019. We provide a fellowship for all ham radio operators, whether you are newly licensed or you are a veteran or you have been off the air for some time.
Our nets are informational and educational and in the spirit of ham radio we want to invoke the high standards that we all should live by and treat each other with respect and dignity.
While we all know this is just a hobby,
we try to have fun and encourage a brotherhood. And most of all HAVE FUN!!
Note we always need new ideas.
In Jan 2020, we are beginning a new era.
KA7DCX Deanna will be doing a special net for the YLs. The fellows will not be excluded but the focus will be on getting more YLs involved. Please join us for the inaugural net on Jan 7, 2020
The success of Amateur radio depends on volunteers. Everyone here is a volunteer.
New blood is welcomed. If you would like to join the group, please contact any one of the admins on the left.
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.
Part of the western reflector
There is a lot of exciting things happening thru out the year on the Echolink *WORLD* Conference server/IRLP 9251.
We are always looking for net controllers.
Being a net controller is a great opportunity to get to know the ham radio community here on the world conference server, so give it a try.
