Friendly 7.188 Net

The Friendly Net was founded on July 15, 2009 by Trevor Ettienne KP2T and Aubrey Nelthropp KV4BT of the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The Net started as a rag-chew. As time went by, the net started to grow where we began to have net controllers from different islands and countries. There are three sessions: the Rag-Chew, Early Bird, and the Regular session.

The Friendly Net has grown to become the largest 40 meter net in the Caribbean region. We support all nets around the Caribbean, letting all who join us give their support to all the different nets.

All licensed amateur radio operators are welcome to join. The Friendly Net's goal is to bring our small Caribbean amateur radio community together.

   Please email; the evening before,
   if you will be unable to run your scheduled net slot.


It is desirable that the Net Control Station in the first hour, be located either in the North or South of the Eastern Caribbean; to allow for the "short-skip" conditions to improve.

There is a unique opportunity to institute a "CO" - Net Control program that will allow for a very comprehensive check-in procedure and enhance responses in a more critical emergency situation.

Stations desirous of joining the Net_Control_Team should use the 'Contact Us' link to communicate with Group Operations.
