The Tuesday night EmComm Roundtable is a statewide net allowing amateur radio operators to discuss and

communication plans for use in times of disaster. This net is not affiliated with any particular group and all amateur
radio operators interested in EmComm are invited. If you are interested in acting as Net Control, please send
email to TonyKitchen808@gmail.com.
