Welcome to the PICONET web site

The PICONET is a network of amateur radio operators located mostly in the Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. We also regularly have stations check in from Nebraska, Arkansas and Montana. All amateurs are welcome to participate. The PICONET has been in operation continuously since the early 1960s. The purpose of the net is to serve the public interest and the amateur radio community, to provide communications services as a convenience or as necessity dictates in times of emergency. Please join us on the air whenever you can.

I have started moving content from the PICONET web pages to Facebook. The goal is to preserve the photos and information collected in this site. You can access the PICONET information by opening Facebook.com and going to the PICONET Group pages. In the search box on the top of Facebook, enter Piconet 3925 and you should be able to view the page. If you wish to add comments or photo content, you must request membership to the group. Once added, you can participate with the Public Group by commenting and or adding photos.... At this time we have more than 80 members on the page.

Thanks, Al - K0CN
