​Join the Video conference even if you don't have HF or can't hear the net on HF!
You can join the net on ZOOM.  If you do have HF capability and can not hear the net, we can work with you thru ZOOM to locate a frequency that will allow us to communicate over the airwaves!
Join The Net On Sunday and enjoy the fellowship!
ZOOM has added a new dimension to the net activities making it possible to bring more people into the net.  
​ZOOM allows net controls to collaborate on getting a new caller recognized.  
Join us on ZOOM and Join the ROAR net. 
If you can hear Net Control or a Relay Station you can tell us and additional efforts will be made to log you into the net over the air.
