Pinebeetle Net

The Pine Beetle Ham Radio Net was formed in 1994 with 13 charter members listed below. We have since inducted 23 new members and 1 honorary member. We are a ragchew group that gets together once a day at 6:30 a.m. on 80 meters around 3764.50 + or -. The discussions range from ham radio talk, computer talk, RV camping talk, all the way to conservative politics. Come sit in with us sometime and give us your feedback.
