The bulletins are prepared and read by various committee members on a schedule that is subject to change.Towards the end of a bulletin, the following week's bulletin reader and contact details are announced.

Note:

The CTARC Weekly Net is held every Monday evening, starting at 20h00, on the 145.750 MHz repeater. It is conducted by Mike ZS1FP.

This informal VHF net is an opportunity for local radio hams to discuss matters of mutual interest and other interesting topics, sometimes (but not necessarily) of a technical nature.

All radio hams are welcome to participate in the CTARC weekly net.
