An amateur radio net, or simply ham net, is an "on-the-air" gathering of amateur radio operators. Most nets are done on a regular schedule and specific frequency, and are organized for a particular purpose, such as relaying messages, discussing a common topic of interest, in severe weather, emergencies, or simply as a regular gathering of friends for conversation. Conducting amateur radio nets is a long time tradition within the hobby.
A formal, or directed net has a single net control station (NCS) that manages its operation for a given session. The NCS operator calls the net to order at its designated start time, periodically calls for participants to join, listens for them to answer (or check in ) keeps track of the roster of stations for that particular net session, and generally coordinates the operation of the net.
