For the 11th consecutive year, The 3916 Nets will be staging The Santa Net on 3.916 MHz. Good girls and boys will be able to talk to Santa Claus, via amateur radio, nightly at 7:30 PM (Central) starting November 25, 2015. The Santa Net will run nightly at 7:30 PM Central through Christmas Eve, December 24, 2016.
Pete Thomson (KE5GGY), of The 3916 Nets, commented on The 3916 Santa Net. He said, “Christmastime is our favorite time of the year on 3.916 MHz. We really enjoy being able to help young people experience both the magic of Christmas and the magic of amateur radio.“
Youngsters can talk to “Santa at The North Pole” via strategically placed relay stations who are responsible for relaying in the voice of Santa. Thomson said that The Santa Net is a team effort that involves the efforts of a number of 3916 Net members. He said, “For over a decade, The Santa Net has connected kids from coast to coast with Santa Claus. With this amount of territory to cover, The Santa Net requires the efforts of a number of relay stations. Our relay stations do a super job and really enjoy bringing the spirit of Christmas to the amateur radio airwaves.”
Prenet check-ins are welcome each night starting at 7:15 PM central or via email at email@example.com Third party rules and regulations apply.
The Santa Nets are presented annually by The 3916 Nets.
