Good girls and boys can talk to Santa Claus, via amateur radio, nightly at 7:15 PM (Central) starting Friday, November 29, 2019. The Santa Net will run nightly at 7:15 PM Central through Christmas Eve, December 24, 2019.
Pete Thomson (KE5GGY), of The 3916 Nets, commented on The 3916 Santa Net. He said, "Christmastime is a very special time for our nets every year. We enjoy helping young people and their families have a shared Christmas experience that they'll always remember. And we're thrilled to introduce young people to the excitement of amateur radio."
Youngsters can talk to "Santa at The North Pole" via strategically placed operators who relay 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, "In our first year, we connected 10 kids to Santa on Ham Radio and it's grown steadily since. For 2019, we're expecting between over 700 children to participate."
Prior to each night's Santa Net, pre-net check-ins can be made at www.cqsanta.com Third party rules and regulations apply.
The Santa Nets are presented annually by The 3916 Nets. The Rag Chew Crew, The Tailgaters and The Freewheelers are all amateur radio nets that meet on 3.916 MHz nightly.

UPDATE- A major Verizon Wireless cell service outage is occurring across much of Indiana and the Midwest. Major outages across the country began at 10:00am EST Wednesday, and have not been resolved, and continue to fluctuate and expand. Verizon does not have an estimate on when services will be restored. At this time, calls are the most affected type of communication, but several reports of texts and data communications are also failing.

This afternoon, a new repeater went on the air for our amateur radio operators. This will allow the use of newer digital and older analog technologies to work together on one system.
The amateur radio operators and their equipment help supplement public safety and first responders in the event of emergencies where our primary communications systems may be unusable.
