We are currently looking for volunteers to join our Net Control team for the Raspberry Pi Net. If you are a seasoned Net Control Operator or would like to give Net Control a try for the first time please get in touch. We do utilise the Netlogger Software for the Raspberry Pi Net so if you are familiar with Netlogger that would be great. If not it is not that difficult to use and full training can be given.

The Raspberry Pi Net runs for about two hours every Sunday starting at 1700 hrs Eastern Time, that is 2100 Hrs UTC.

You do not have to be based in the United States. Everybody is welcome.

Welcome to the ROC-HAM Radio Network Website

This site was set up to inform, educate and most of all, a place to go to share information with what is going on with the ROC-HAM EchoLink conference. The ROC-HAM Conference just celebrated a year of its inception.

The ROC-HAM Conference was born out of an ideal for a place for hams to go and share info, keep up to date with special events that goes on throughout the year on the conference.

Since I’ve been licensed I’ve always wanted an EchoLink Conference, well after 5 years and many hours of hard work it paid off.
Now there is a permanent home for the “WORLD AMATEUR RADIO DAY and HEDY LAMARR” Special events that have been going on for the last 8 years and respectively as well as the last 7 years.

This site is to foster the ham radio arts, bring people together, share experiences, and learn new technologies along the way. Meet some amazing people from all over the world, and most importantly, HAVE FUN ALONG THE WAY.

This website and it contents would not be possible if not for the hard work and dedication and grateful for all the guidance that I have received from my right hand man, Dave Phillips/GW8SZL. Dave has been a great teacher and his patience and dedication are without saying.

The ROC-HAM Conference is node number 531091 on the ECHOLINK system and on ALLSTAR system nodes 2585, 47620, 47918, 531310. Also on DMR TGIF Talk Group 2585.

The ROC-HAM Conference also has a dedicated YOUTUBE channel named “WORLD AMATEUR RADIO DAY”.
That channel will have live streaming audio from special events that the “ROC” will be hosting and sometimes you just might hear a live feed of a net that is on the “ROC”.

There are great videos to watch.

The “ROC” has nets from 7:30am thru late in the evening, Monday – Sunday. Whatever time of day it is, you are sure to find stations from all over the world connected sharing their stories and comments.

The “ROC” is located in Rochester, NY. I’m on the southern tip of Lake Ontario, home of a famous film maker and of course home to Susan B. Anthony, famous for her own achievements.

There is a lot of great info on this site, and along the way it will grow with content that most hams will find useful.

Thank you for coming to the site, hope you enjoy it.
