Yuba City on 146.085 MHz, plus 600 kHz offset, tone 127.3 Hz. Please

For those who are unable to access the WD6AXM repeater, our HF net will
commence IMMEDIATELY after the VHF SV net signs off, on the 3880 kHz LSB

HF net if they are able.

If you do not hear net control over your radio, please check in anyway
and listen for net control to acknowledge you via the Half Moon Bay

All ARRL members, club presidents, Section appointees, and all
appropriately licensed radio amateurs are encouraged to check in to the

discussion.

ARRL Sacramento Valley Section Nets are conducted, when announced via
Official Bulletin and on www.arrlsacvalley.org, on the third Thursday of
such months.  

All Sacramento Valley Section radio amateurs are welcome to check into
our Section nets.  The nets carry announcements of interest to our
