    There are certainly nets, but what's the attraction?

    I try to stay as far away from nets as I can get.

    The Macon GA area is hardly midwest, I guess I'd try ECARS on 7225 kHz at 10:00 Eastern. One possibility for a less formal net would be the Kadiddlehoppers on 7253.5 kHz.

    Depends on the time of day you want to get on also. I listen to 40M SSB going to work and there are a lot of nets on in the morning. In the evening I don't notice any but I'm sure they are there.

    There are QRS nets between 7100 and 7125. SKCC on 7055 and FISTS on 7058.
    Lot of DX at night if you can go below 7025.

    If I had that antenna I wouldn't be worrying with nets, I'd be chasing DX ;-)

    Nets? Why don't you just call CQ?
    Or make a sked with some people here.

    Herein is another "Chevy, Ford or Dodge" debate.. "DX chasers, Net followers, CW advocates or Digital enthusiasts" It doesn't matter what you're preference might be as long as you're having fun with amateur radio. Tune around & listen. You'll find your niche with a facet of the hobby you enjoy.. Explore & learn.. It's not a hobby.... it's an adventure!!
    If Forest Gump were a ham he might say.. When ya call CQ its like a box of chocolates... ya never know who yer gonna get"
    Bottom Line:...enjoy!

    I work 40/80m every day but only the DX that is where it's really at work the world! A beam on 40m is a real killer I have a Mosley Pro-67 C3 10-40m with 3 elem on 40m I'm getting very close to 40m DXCC.
