Welcome to the Web Home of the Tri-State AMSAT Net
The Tri-State AMSAT net meets every Saturday evening at 8PM Central time on the WX9MCS repeater in Rockford, IL--147.255 + 114.8.  This is a very wide area coverage repeater; we have Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, and sometimes Michigan and Indiana check in.  

The Net is open to all amatuer radio operators.  The net goes as follows: We first take check ins. We run down the list of checked in stations to give them a chance to add beginning comments regarding satellites/space communications via ham radio. Then, net control, K9TSU, will read the AMSAT news bulletin and discuss a topic regarding satellites such as tracking, software, antennas, radios, DX, etc. After this, everyone gets a chance to add a final comment, where, after that, the net is closed.

We would like to thank Brett, K9BY; Eric, N9MCS; Mike, K9OMG; Will, KC9SQR; and Vince, K9TSU for their work on the repeater.  The back up repeater is the UHF WX9MCS repeater: 444.725 + 107.2.
