The Alaska Snipers Net started in the early 1970’s. It has been on the air continuously, every night, seven days a week since February 24, 1973. It now holds the distinction of being the oldest continuous net in the state of Alaska. As the group grew there was a need for handling traffic and phone patches from within the state of Alaska. A roll call net was established and has been operating ever since.
The net meets every day at 6PM local Alaska Time on 3920 kHz. It is a roll call net but visitors from any part of the world are encouraged to check in after the roll.
We handle emergency and 3rd party traffic along with phone patches and just getting people together that need to chat. Anyone may request to be added to the roll. New members are added the first of each month. It only takes 7 checkins a month to remain on the roll. If you have any questions about the net or its operation feel free to contact---
Monthly Stats and now Yearly Stats and View a Date are available for everyone
