Hudson Valley 80 Meter Net - Wednesdays – 5:00 PM EDT – 3.835 MHz

 Hudson Valley 80 Meter Net - Tomorrow, Wed. June 22 – 5:00 PM EDT – 3.835 MHz

All are welcome to check-in to the weekly Wednesday sessions of the Hudson Valley 80 Meter Net beginning at 5:00 PM EDT on 3.835MHz (+/- 5-10 kHz).

There were 16 participants for last Wednesday’s Hudson Valley 80 Meter Net including on new check-in from Washington Township in New Jersey.  Welcome to Jim K2ZO a member of the Bergen Amateur Radio Club where he is the net control for their Monday night 10-meter net at 9:00 pm on 28.375 MHz.  Jim is well known for his tireless work over the years as one of the moving forces and contact for the popular BARA Hamfest each spring.

Check-ins came from New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.

113 different amateur radio operators from the Canadian Border to the Southern Shore of Long Island and seven states have checked-in at least once since the HV 80 Meter Net began in December of 2021.

The HV 80 Net and our associated HV 80 Website is not just for Hudson Valley Stations!    

We welcome all check-ins and Forum posts from licensed amateur radio operators.

Reports from your home area of fund raisers for first responders or charitable organizations; hiking trails; unusual natural phenomena; local history and historical sites; community events; great restaurants and wineries; recreational opportunities; notices about trail and road closures and, of course, amateur radio and ‘maker’ events are encouraged.

Wherever you reside, your own knowledge, experience, and news can be of help to those who are planning business or vacation travel to your home town and county.

 We are pleased that the Hudson Valley 80 Meter Website at https://www.hudsonvalley80meter.net is now up and running and many are posting information that will be of interest to those checking in and listening to the HV 80 Net.


Currently we are only ‘on the air’ one day a week and the HV 80 website allows us to continue our communications and mutual support of one another and others in our local communities throughout the week.

We hope the new website will support our regional community of amateur radio operators and provide for enhanced communication, cooperation, collaboration and camaraderie between and amongst all those in our region, neighboring regions and states.

You needn’t submit the ‘Sign-Up’ form to view the Forum of Blog Posts on the website.

Just click the ‘X’ in the upper right-hand corner of the form to gain access to the website.

However, we hope that many will indeed submit the form which will allow you to submit your own comments, reports, replies and inquiries.

Please use the ‘Contact’ page for further information and to provide ideas, suggestions and feedback about the Hudson Valley 80 Meter Net or contact Paul AC2UQ at pbrown4082@aol.com.

 Our HV 80 Net Map [shown below] continues to grow each week thanks to the first-time check-ins coming from amateur radio enthusiasts throughout the Northeast.


 Thanks to the efforts of Joe AD2AH there are now 5 layers in the map showing the 1) location; 2) elevation; 3) weather stations (if known) of previous participants; 4) stations that participated in the HV 80 Pilot Tests and Inaugural Sessions and 5) Hudson Valley and neighboring region 2-Meter Repeaters showing offsets and PL tones.

You will find a URL link to the Map on the new Hudson Valley 80 Meter Net website at https://www.hudsonvalley80meter.net.

 The Hudson Valley 80 Meter Net is held weekly on Wednesdays at 5:00 pm on 3.835 MHz (+/- 5-10 kHz).

 We also hold ‘pop-up’ Weather Nets mid-mornings and late afternoons when Severe Weather Watches and Warnings for our region are in effect.

All are welcome!  Please spread the word!
