    The YACHT youth net is starting a new youth net on HF! It begins today (Sunday) at 4PM EST on 14.325 +/- QRM. The net control today will be a youth operator. Anyone and everyone is welcome! Please join us today and/or some of the upcoming Sundays!

    Also, be sure to check out the YACHT youth net that meets Saturdays at 8 PM EST on the W8PIF-R on echolink.

    For more information, please check out our new website:

    And our Facebook page:

    73 and hope some more youth (and adults) can join us!

    May be you should add the UTC times to encourage international participation. I'm not sure what 4 pm EST means for us but it's probably our late Monday morning.
    73 Holger and good luck

    Oh... I should have added that! 4 PM EST is 2100 UTC.

    And our echolink net would be at 0100 UTC. But when the time changes here next month, 8 PM EST will be 0000 UTC.

    In two months I'll have some HF gear. I'm just putting together my HF station right now. I think this is a great idea because it would be really cool to meet some more kids my age on the radio! Thanks for the information and I hope to be on soon.

    Welcome to the hobby, Evan! Unfortunately due to lack of check-ins, we no longer have the HF net. However, we still have the Echolink net at 8 PM EST which has lots of check-ins. Hopefully you can join us!

    Brings back memories of the old North American Youth Net which my old ham radio buddy KC0KBH and I tried to get going but it was tough going sometimes getting a crowd together, and with propagation and a bunch of young people running little stations. Good luck with your net, hopefully it is still alive and going.
