For the 10th consecutive year, the 3.916 Nets will be giving good boys and girls a chance to talk to Santa Claus via the magic of ham radio. The '3916 Santa Nets' will be held on 28 consecutive nights starting Friday, November 27 through Christmas Eve, December 24th.  The Santa Net will start at 7:30 PM (Central) each night.  Prenet check-ins are welcome starting at 7:15 PM or by email at 3916nets@gmail.com.  The Santa Nets are open to all licensed amateur radio operators who wish to invite kids to their shack to talk to Santa. Third party rules will apply. 

Pete Thomson (KE5GGY), commented on The 3916 Santa Nets. He said, "Christmas is our favorite time of year on The 3916 Nets. Each year on the Santa Nets we are blown away by the response. It's incredible to hear the excitement in kids' voices as they talk to Santa Claus on Ham Radio." Thomson added that The Santa Nets are a great way to let kids experience both the magic of Christmas and amateur radio. He said, "We encourage hams to get their kids, grand kids and even neighbor kids into their shacks to participate in the Santa Net. The kids love talking to Santa and we get an opportunity to show a young person how amateur radio works."

The Santa Nets are presented each year by the 3916 Nets.   The Weather Bunch, The Rag Chew Crew, The Tailgaters, The Freewheelers & The 3916 Late Show are nets that meet on 3.916 MHz, Sunday-Friday Nights.  For more information on The 3916 Nets go to http://www.3916nets.com  Find The Santa Nets Facebook Page at https://www.facebook.com/3916santanet/
