I have a World Wide List of HAM/SSB Maritime Frequencis and Nets here
I started this about 5 years ago and distribute it freely with the hope people will provide feedback on any changes to the Nets. For the PDF List, go here
You are in San Francisco
... I lived there before going fulltime cruising in Sep 2010.
Unfortunately you probably won't hear most of the Mexican Maritime Nets in San Francisco
, except one.
So the first Net I would suggest is the Baja
Net on 7233.5 LSB, which meets every morning, 7 days a week, at 0800 hrs. Pacific Time. They have net relays all over the western US and northern Mexico
. Primrily providing weather
and check ins for boaters. They are friendly and always welcome new operators.
At 0830 Pacific Time, Gordon West has a Net on 7.250 LSB called the California Rescue
40 Meter Net. Gordo gives HAM and SSB
infomration during this and always has boats check in first. For more infomration go here
You should also check in once and a while with either the Intercon Net, the Mobile Maritime Service
Net or the Pacific Seafarer's Net all on 14300 USB... The Pacific Seafarers Net if the most formal of these three nets and I would suggest you listen a little while first to learn the process. For more info got to www.14300.net
Tht should get you start and good luck!
