What is the Lone Ranger Net? Good Question, the net was established after a real event happened in our area which resulted in a local HAM becoming a silent key.
Our Mission: The net was created as a daily check in for members of the amateur radio community, no matter their QTH, who wish to have someone check in on them to make sure they’re OK. So, if you live alone, you are disabled, if you need some help with a chore, or you’re just wanting some one to check in on you, then this net is here for you. Join us nightly on the Chattanooga TN repeater 146.790 or on Echolink node 79190.
The net meets every night at 7PM ET on the K4VCM 146.790 repeater no tone – offset, or Echolink K4VCM-R node 79190. The repeater is located on Signal Mtn in Chattanooga, TN. You can access it via Echolink anywhere you have access to Echolink.
All are welcome to check in to the net, but the main purpose is to hear from those hams who have asked to have us check on them and be on our daily callback list. You don’t have to be a member of any club or organization to sign up to the call back list or check-in to the net. Here’s how the call back list works. It’s your choice how you want us to proceed if you don’t check in to the net and have not notified us that you won’t be answering the roll on a particular night. We’ll call or text you to see if all is well. If we can’t reach you by those methods, we can contact a neighbor or relative, notify authorities or for hams in the Chattanooga area do a drive by and a door knock.
