A wide range of topics are discussed each week with the net moderated by CJ KD2IIN, an avid farmer, gardener and environmentalist. 


Please join us every Tuesday evening at 9:30 PM local NEw York time on the OMARC 146.805 (-600 khz PL tone 103.5) repeater. ALl are welcome to participate or just listen in.


See what we've discussed and follow along here in the Farmers & Gardeners Net Forum  

The New Ham Net is organized by the Overlook Mountain Amateur Radio Club’s Education Committee. 

It meets every Sunday evening at 9:00 PM local New York time which is the same as 2100 local hours or 0100 Universal Time Coordinate (UTC/Zulu) to provide education, information, and a voice of experience to recently licensed Amateur Radio operators. 


This net can be found on the 146.805 WA2MJM repeater located in Woodstock, NY area with a coverage area of roughly 30 miles south, 10 miles west, 20 miles east and 10 miles north.  To access this repeater, please use a 0.6 MHz negative shift and a PL tone of 103.5 Hz.


You can also listen to this repeater via Echolink which is available to all licensed amateur operators from anywhere you have internet access via a computer or mobile device. Look for either K2GOG-R or WA2MJM-R in the station listing within your Echolink application.  

Participants learn how to operate in a net structure, and anyone with a question can have it answered here by a weekly rotation of net control stations.  We may also share information from OMARC, the ARRL, or other local events, activities and organizations as appropriate.

This is a directed net and all communication will be directed through Net Control for the duration of the net.  The New Ham Net typically lasts 45 minutes with multiple opportunities to check in throughout its duration.


Current rotation of net control stations as of October 2017 include:


·        Keith Tilley K2UNI

·        Steve Bossert K2GOG

·        Michael KD2NMG

Please also have a look at our OMARC Forum where you can ask questions and receive answers in our non-member Ham Q&A section found here.


We regret to inform everyone that two of our long standing nets are no longer in operation. 

Our Monday through Saturday morning Weather Net and our Thursday Evening Ulster County "Rag" Net were great assets we hope to reactivate in the future.

The Overlook Mountain Amateur Radio Club would like to thank Irwin WA2EW, Chester KC2ZYF, Bruce N2ZAC and all other guest net control stations, participants and listeners for supporting both of these nets over the years.

The Overlook Mountain Amateur Radio Club (OMARC) strives to be a leading steward in promoting the future of amateur radio.
