WORLD FAMOUS AWFUL AWFUL NET
Coast to Coast, Border to Border, and beyond, the World Renowned Awful Awful Ugly Net was formed on March 16, 1992 by a group of retiries and vets from around the country that started talking to one another. On this night we decided to form a net. Then we had people join in with us from around the country.
The AAU Net starts out at 7pm (Central Standard Time) on or about 3855Khz with the pre net for check in’s and rag chew, and at 8pm (Central Standard Time) the Net begins officially . We are in our Twenty Fifth Year of service. The AAU net meets every single night of the week, 365 days a year and 366 on leap year, as long as conditions permit a Net Controller to get on Frequency. We hope everybody stops in tonight and says hello.
We are known world wide as the Awful Awful Ugly net but don't let that scare you away because you don't have to be awful awful ugly, you don't have to be awful ugly, you don't have to be ugly at all. You can be as beautiful as Marylyn Monroe or as handsome as Ben Afflack and participate in this net. But if you check in just one time, then you are branded a Awful Awful Ugly member for life. You don't have to belong to any clubs or other organizations, just have a General Class license or higher and checkin that one time. So PLEASE come and join us as we have fun with our hobby.
This net is rated G. We are a Christian Comradery net, so please folks conduct yourself accordingly. This is a family net and always has been. This being a family net you will not hear any profanity, off colored jokes or anything like that. We do not discuss politics or other controversial issues here. However we cannot police the entire Amateur community. So if you do hear anything like that, we pray it does not come from one of our members.
We are not a traffic net or emergency net but if there is any Emergency, Priority or Time Value traffic just call Break Break, that's the Double Break, and you will get all the help we can possibly give you.
We always start the net with the Pledge of Allegiance followed by the Wayback Machine and then a prayer. Once the net begins we will call all the stations on the Short Time List that cannot stay for the entire net. Next we call on the Full Time checkins. After reaching the bottom of the list we go back to the top and start the 73 round. We then end our net with a prayer. And before each prayer we take prayer requests and give praise reports. We hope to see all of you as often as possible on the Awful Awful Ugly Net.
Net Control Stations are as follows:
Sunday – W5MZ David with tag team assist by WD5DJX “The Bull”
Monday – WD5DJX “The Bull” with tag team assist by W5MZ David
Tuesday – KC0MQS Jimmy and W5CCT Tom “the Dream Team” or "The Tom and Jimmy Show"
Wednesday – KD0MZL Dave The Mud Duck "Quack Quack"
Thursday – N0MBK Mike Our Resident Chaplin
Friday – KB5AAU Wayne “the Founder” Charter Member # ONE
Saturday – N5SRB Sam The Solid Rocket Booster Man
Backup N/C~ KC0ZYW Porter Resident Sheriff
Backup N/C~ KC5YWN Adona Mike
Again, our resident chaplin is N0MBK Mike
Some of us are on the move a lot to different parts of the country. We keep in contact through the net. Anyone who has a General Class license or above is welcome to check in anytime between 7:pm CST and the end of the Net.
The net has continued to grow over the years. There is a spin off net called the Awful Awful Ugly Net #2 (Which celebrated 8 years on March 26, 2014) on CQ100 on the Internet at 7:30pm (on the Virtual 3855 KHz) for those Ham radio operators without HF equipment. You still must have a Ham license but any class will do here.
We just celebrated 22 years of being on the air every night on March 16, 2014. We had 112 check ins for this special anniversary net. Each check in received a nice certificate with their call sign and name on it.
We also use NetLogger 2.4 which is a free download. Sunday and Monday it is in full use, and sometimes other days. We try to at least have it up as a check in path on days that netlogger isn’t actually tracking the net. It offers chat called “Almost Instant Message”. There is a 20 second delay between messages. If the chat has been up and active and has seen many messages it could take some time when you connect to see ALL of the messages. To find the net once you get netlogger, go to EDIT then SERVERS. Select the SATERN server. The AAU Net is on the SATERN server and will not be reachable on any of the others. When it’s time for the net go to FUNCTION and Monitor net in progress or just click on the right top NET'sONLINE button. Be sure to Select “Awful Awful Ugly Net” from the list. If there are other nets on this server, theyare not related to the AAU Net. Please do not click on these nets and disrupt them as we are guest's on their server. If you click on any other net, they can see you on their net monitor and this disrupts their net check in structure. WD5DJX “The Bull” is administrator of the logger.
NetLogger 2.4 which is a free download. It offers chat and other check in options. If you have any problems or other questions, just email me at: email@example.com.
Have to unhook for bad weather? You can still listen to the AAU Net online. There are a couple of places to go: http://remotehams.com/ not only lets you listen, but can actually get you on the air. You can also go to: http://globaltuners.com/ for even more listening paths.
