835 on the 805 Net. Daily at 8:35am

At 8:35 am each morning we gather together on the Overlook Mountain Amateur Radio Club repeater (the ‘805’) to ‘keep together while staying apart’.   Amateur radio is the original social media with no internet required.

OMARC Daily Check-in Net. Daily at 6:30pm

An informal discussion net. Every day at 1830 ET.

UNDR Net. Mondays at 8:00pm

The UNDR Group promotes community readiness via amateur radio. Every Monday at 8:00 PM on the WA2MJM 146.805 MHz repeater.

UNDR sponsors short-duration gatherings at local state parks in Northern Dutchess and Ulster counties, based on their training and education curriculum. A calendar of past and upcoming UNDR Events can be found on their Facebook page.

Second Tuesdays Presentation, monthly

A guest presenter will be sharing something exciting with OMARC friends and members the second Tuesday of each month.

This is still zoom-only. An update with meeting link will be shared prior to the meeting, so please keep an eye on groups.io for details.

Hudson Valley 80 Meter Net. Wednesdays at 5:00pm

This is the only net that is not conducted on the repeater. Meet on SSB 3.835. Check out their web site and their cool map of contacts.

Tech Net. Thursdays at 8:00pm

This net is run by Dave, K2JLV OMARC President, and is a technical discussion net for everyone. Sometimes Dave brings topics to the net, sometimes participants bring topics to the net but it is always an excellent discussion and learning opportunity. If you have something you want to ask about or talk about, The Thursday net is a great place to ask questions, open a discussion, or just generally have a nice chat with people from all walks of life. We hope you will join us in the fun.

Science and Technology Net. Sundays at 8:00pm

This new incarnation of the Sunday night net is hosted by Neil W2NDG and Jim K2BHM. Not limited to radio, you might find them talking about lots of wild topics.
