Central Michigan Amateur Radio Club

Note: The Listen Live to the 145.390 Repeater is currently out of order. We are working to restore this feature. We do not know exactly when the Listen Live feature will be restored.

Nets are perhaps the single most important aspect of Amateur Radio. It makes sense, really, when you consider that the foundation of Amateur Radio is Public Service and Communication. With that in mind, please consider joining us on an upcoming Net, won't you?

Net Control Don McLain KB8RAD
The nets latest record is 117 check-ins on Friday, March 8, 2013!!!

This Net has been in existence since September 24, 2009 and has been a hit! Don started this net do to the dreary silence he was hearing every morning. He was afraid that this was a sign of things to come for Amateur Radio operators. So warm up your radio, computer, phone, or tablet and join KB8RAD on The Breakfast Club Net.

The Central Michigan Slow Scan TV Net, with your host Carl (K8YHH) meets every Sunday. If you're new to Slow Scan TV, or a Pro, you are welcome to join at 7pm on the 145.39 (- Offset, 100Hz PL) LCDRA Repeater. Click HERE to see the photos sent during the Slow Scan Net.


The Lansing ARPSC Net is held the first Monday of the month on the 145.39 LCDRA Repeater. Tune in at 7pm on the first Monday of the month to participate with your Net Control, Don McLain (KB8RAD).

The purpose of the Net is to pass traffic, provide training for ARPSC members, exchange information for ARPSC members regarding activities and requirements and to be heard amongst HAM's and non-HAM's alike in the multi-county footprint of the repeater.


We have two Nets on Tuesday evenings, with both taking place at the same time, but on different repeaters. You are welcome to visit both.

The first is the Ladies Tea Time Net, held each Tuesday evening at 7pm on the 145.39 LCDRA Repeater. Your Net Control Operator, Julie McLain (KB8ZXR) welcomes one and all to this Net, which is primarily geared to the ladies out there. If you are a lady without a license, talk to your OM and get him to stand by while you check in 3rd party.

Yes, the guys are welcome too. Grab a nice, hot cup of tea and get in on the fun.

Second is the Quarter Century Wireless Association Net, with Net Control Operator, Don Tillitson (WB8NUS). The Net starts at 8pm and is held on the 146.70 LCDRA Repeater (- Offset, 107.2Hz PL) and is open to all licensed Amateurs.


Join Don McLain KB8RAD as he carries on the tradition of the Mid-Michigan Information Net. As local hams did before the net was moved to Sunday night, the net will now meet on Wednesday nights at 8 PM. This net along with many of our other local nets can be found on the 145.39 LCDRA Repeater. You'll leave every week with an update of what's going on locally in our ham community, and a smile on your face.


The MRAY Net (Michigan Radio Amateur Youth Net) was cancelled by Corey Bullock on December 18, 2014.

Let's remember & give thanks to all who maintain our local area repeaters from the Lansing Civil Defense Repeater Association (LCDRA) who give of their time & money to keep up the, 145.39, 146.94, 146.70, 145.47, 224.98 repeaters. Without which we would not be able to have the wonderful Net's we enjoy!
