On The Air

BVRC Sponsored Nets

Our 2 Meter Net

The Bella Vista Radio Club conducts a weekly Two Meter FM net on our repeater at 8:00 p.m. local time each Wednesday evening.  Set your radio to the frequency of 147.255 +600KHz offset with a 162.2 tone

Our weekly 2 Meter Net serves as a gathering spot for the ham population of all license classes throughout the greater Bella Vista area.

The purpose of the net is to practice passing emergency and non-emergency public service traffic, and to disseminate general announcements.

Members and guests from within the footprint of the repeater are always welcome to check-in and participate.

Our Wide Area Net

Jon's Repeater Coverage

Also every Wednesday night, after our 2 Meter net on our repeater, at 9:00 p.m. we also have the “Wide Area” Net, which now includes two repeaters linked together.

The 75 Meter Roundtable

Another popular gathering spot for our club members is a weekly HF Roundtable each Sunday afternoonon on the 75 Meter band at 3830 KHz.  The Roundtable meets at 4:00 p.m. CST (22:00 UTC)

This informal “Party Line of the Air” has grown in popularity and now attracts hams from throughout Northwest Arkansas and the tri-state area.

We share a variety of news relating to operating, building, experimenting, hamfests & swapmeets, items to buy/sell/trade, and even birthdays and anniversaries.

Periodic guests include Bob Heil, K9EID, of Heil Sound, and other notables.  All General Class and higher licensees are welcome!
