Marine ssb nets

I'm looking to verify that I have accurate freqs for ssb radio nets.

I can't receive any of them on my Kaito. Need to make sure I'm listening to the right freq at the right time.

So who has the most accurate up to date list of nets?

I got mine from radiolabs winter list.

Re: Marine ssb nets

It might help to know if you are receiving anything on any bands, and how far away from the nets you are trying to receive from.

The Kaito radios I see on Amazon are, well, next to toys, meant for local and home use and not in the same class as marine or amateur radios.

Oh - I have great luck with the Kaito 1103. Sensitivity and rejection aren't as good as my Icom 802 or Kenwood 450 but perfectly acceptable.

IIRC, Noonsite has a list that is somewhat more comprehensive than the one linked above.

Cheers,

Jim

Re: Marine ssb nets

I've got a Kaito1103, and from San Francisco, when the conditions are right, can easily hear the Hawaii USCG weather broadcasts. With any receiver, the frst thing I do is tune to WWV (Colorado) / WWVH (Hawaii). This is a 24/7 time-signal broadcast on 2.5, 5, 10, 15, and 20 MHz (WWVH doesn't use 20 MHz). There are other worldwide time-signal stations that are useful as propagation beacons. Here's a list: HF Time and Frequency Standard Stations

Dockside radio, not radiolabs is what I meant to post originally. That is the list I'm now using with little luck. I chased Chris Parker to all the freqs listed at the scheduled times and never heard anything

Do you mean that you can't hear *anything*, or that you can't hear Chris Parker?

Step 1: Figure out how to hear *something*. The time signals I mentioned are good practice, since they are always transmitting. Once you can receive some/any distant signals, you can move on to Chris Parker and the other marine nets.
