What We Do
Bay-Net is an open amateur radio club in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our repeater system provides wide-area coverage for public service events and emergency communications.
Our community is active in all aspects of the amateur radio hobby. You are welcome to join us on the air through our repeater system and on line mailing list.
We sponsor events through out the year and encourage everyone to participate.
Welcome to Bay-Net !
We sponsor 7 repeaters in the bay area. This includes 4 conventional analog FM repeaters that are connected full time at two sites providing wide area coverage.
We also sponsor 3 digital repeaters and internet-based linking hubs.
These repeaters include DMR, D-STAR and System Fusion.
On the 4th weekend in June, Bay-Net members operate Field Day. We have a great turnout and it's a good opportunity to learn about gear and operating with hands-on experience. All are welcome.
Throughout the year, many members also participate in SOTA, Winter Field Day, and a casual operating event at the local park. Check the mailing list for announcements.
Our big annual event is BayCon. The Bay-Net Radio Conference.
We have outstanding guest speakers and a wide variety of topics of interest to the amateur community. We publish their presentations on this web site and also links to audio recordings.
We have over 350 members of our mailing list hosted on Groups.IO
The membership has a great wealth of knowledge and experience. You are welcome to join our mailing list and participate.
Bay-Net is a 501(c)3 tax exempt non-profit organization. Running several high level repeaters is an expensive undertaking. We appreciate any contributions that you can make to keep our systems up and running.
