Welcome from the Manager

I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of all the wonderful people on the 7290 Traffic Net to welcome you to the net and the web page. The 7290 Traffic Net has been in continuous operation for over fifty years and as the name implies we are here to handle traffic to any location it’s legal to send it to. We also operate extra sessions during emergencies when needed, to help any way we can. But we are really more than just a traffic net. Our members become friends and family. For all of you that are new hams or just new to the net please let us know if there is anything we can assist you with or questions we can answer. I hope you enjoy looking around on this web site at all the information and links . The Net also has a once a year get-together where we have good fellowship and good food. Consider this your own personal invitation to attend. I hope that you will check in with us and feel free to contact me anytime for any questions or comments. 

73, Jo Ann Keith KA5AZK Net Manager
