The 7.130 DX Net is held every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, commencing at 0930 UTC, on 7.130 MHZ.
The Net control duties are shared by Roy VK7ROY & Mal VK5MJ.
As far as is known, the 7.130 DX net is the only 40 meter Australian DX net. Net control manages two lists.
After you 'check in' you have 'licence' to add yourself to the 'work DX' list. Then you will be offered priority to make a DX call from the short list.
Net control will make several 'check in' calls during the net.
A number of North American stations regularly checkin to this Net, along with stations from the Pacific, and often other DX.
Many Australian Foundation licence holders check into the net and get a great opportunity to work DX with just their 5 watts. Personally, I worked my first DX on this net when I had my Foundation call and it was a great thrill.
The Barefoot Net was held daily (except Saturday night) on 7.170 MHZ at 0500 UTC. Ian VK3VIN was Net Control. The Net was designed for amateurs who do not use amps, but everyone was welcome. The Net was a general ragchew net, but DX stations were welcome.
