The purpose of the net is to allow participants to work together in a joint exercise and to become familiar with the names, call signs and voices of hams in neighboring jurisdictions.

The net will rotate among three ARES repeaters. Each ARES group will host a net. All interested persons are encouraged to check into each of the three nets.
