Welcome to the MINOW NET. We are a group of ladies, who are active in amateur radio. When MINOW was organized in 1963 the membership included YLs from Montana, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. Today we have members throughout the United States, although only those members that live in Montana, Idaho, Oregon, or Washington have voting privileges.

To join MINOW NET contact the Secretary/Treasurer. Annual dues are $1 and are due on May 1st of each year. You may pay your dues in advance if you wish. Dues should be sent to the Secretary/Treasurer or can be paid at the annual meeting in May. The dues help support our website and other small projects.

Current activities include the weekly Echolink net on node 286905 on Thursday evening at 7:30 pm Pacific time, a weekly HF net on 3.812 or thereabouts on Friday morning at 8:30 am Pacific time, an Annual Meeting in May and a Luncheon in September.
