Welcome to the New Hams Ottawa web site Home Page

Our goal is to provide you with some basic information and links to more in depth content that we hope you will find useful in your early journey across the ham radio waves.

About our net

If you would like to join us, we hold a net on one of the local Ottawa repeaters on Tuesday evenings.

  • We start at 20:00 hours (8 pm) eastern time using repeater VE2CRA which is on 146.940 MHz on the 2m amateur radio band, using a 100 Hz CTCSS tone and negative offset (or a transmit frequency of 146.340 MHz.
  • The Phoenix Net that starts at 19:30 hours on VE3OCE.

If you don't have a radio you can still join us by installing EchoLink on either your smartphone or Windows computer. There are some slightly different code versions for Mac and Linux machines written by others. Instructions to assist you in installing EchoLink are available on our Repeaters and Echolink page. Once you have EchoLink installed connect to the Echolink repeater VA3EGY-R (when it is activated around the time of the weekly net) and you can join the fun.
