    well, seeing as you are "new" on 40, you may want to check out the OMISS net on 7.185 @ 0100 utc daily.

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

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

    For 40 meters in the MidWest ... it is MIDCARS

    For your area (Georgia) on 40 meters check out SOUTHCARS

    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 ;-)
