NTS Corner

The National Traffic System dates back to 1939 when George Hart, W1NJM skillfully created a way to route messages across the country in 24 hours.  In Connecticut, we have nets that meet daily to handle traffic into and out of the Section.  You too can get involved by contacting Section Traffic Manager Anne West K1STM her email address:  


What is NTS?  What are nets?  What is traffic?

Anne has the answers!!


These questions are also answered in this very nice guide written by Mark W2EAG and is used here with enthusiastic permission.  There may be a couple of inconsistencies as some time has elapsed but they can be handled on a case-by case basis.  The material is well written and represents a great deal of work by an avid traffic handler.  I hope it is useful to you and that you enjoy the content.

Public Service Honor Roll

If you’re an NTS operator or an ARES volunteer, you can be recognized on the Public Service Honor Roll by filing a report with your Section Traffic Manager at the beginning of the following month indicating your service.  For many years, this was known to be an NTS-only award but categories for ARES participants were added some years ago so do file a report and be recognized!  Read all about it at
