Here's How to List Your Station

palm trees ohana net radio

Simple as Sponsor and Free


Two Ways to be Included in the Ohana Net Listings:

Basic (free): Sign Up for the Chat Room (get an ID, pwd, etc).
Then enter your basic information in the Chat Room mentioning my call sign along with yours, mine is W6BQZ, then add your city and state, and name.

2. Go for the Sponsor Listing to help support the Net and the Web Site. So, do Step One above, and then add on your equipment, keeping it short (ie: we don't need all your radios, just the one you use for the Net), as:

This second type of listing is the Sponsor Listing where you can get all of the above, plus your radios, antennas and amplifiers listed in the Sponsor Listing at the top of the page. They are good for one year. And you get a Link to your QRZ Page from your listing!

If you need a guideline, see the top of this page for the Sponsor Listings to see how it will turn out.

NEW! Send me your photo, your headshot, and it will go to the top of this page as a Greeter!

These listings are given only to those who contribute to the costs of running the web site, and we use PayPal to accept all contributions. We need Sponsors! Boy do we need Sponsors, and Here's How:

Thank You for contributing to!

About the Ohana Net

The "Ohana" net is on 14.268 MHz at 1630 UTC weekday and Saturday mornings and then they QSY to 14.307 - same time slot - on Sunday mornings. Lately, however (noted: 5/2/2015) it is best to check both frequencies on the weekend.

The Net starts at 1630 UTC. About thirty minutes before the Net you can find members milling about, saying hello and catching up on what's new.

While the Net is structured just enough to recognize everyone, it is not excessively so and that gives it a warm and relaxing glow. It's a fun net to get into and stretch you signal legs - check out propagation and how your station is doing out to the islands (or into the mainland if you live in those warm and amazing waters of the Pacific Ocean). You won't be required to do anything other than to be part of their Family. No suit or tie is necessary. Scuba gear, coconuts and woven hats are okay but might raise some eyebrows with the relatives if you hail from cooler climates.

If you find a grass skirt and a life raft floating nearby, please return them to their rightful owners.

Ben, KH6LJ is in Oahu, Hawaii, North Shore, and is known as the manager, founder and chairman of the Net. And there are alternate net control operators who take the helm: Wayne, WH6OR in Maui; Tom, N0EV in Colorado; and Gene, WB7DBJ, on Whidbey Island, Washington; and, George, W9EVT, and others take the assignment when called upon. Each team member takes turns running the Net during the week and on weekends, and Ben can almost always be found every day and he takes the control seat on Saturdays.

Ohana in Hawaii means "family" and all are welcome to join in, share signal strengths, weather reports, and what is new in your life - and most importantly, to enjoy the comradery.

We have inscribed "Ohana means Family" blue and gold pens with bright light and stylus on sale at:

We also have a Chat Channel to take advantage of, and on Solar Flare days it can sure come in handy.

Will the owner of the '46 Woody please report to the East exit Valet Shack, we've found your statue of Don Ho along with what looks like an old SCM 900 something if you want to retrieve it. We're wondering what you could possibly use it for. hi hi


This page is a work in progress and I do this as a hobby. In no way do I represent the Ohana Net, but in every way I hope that if this page helps existing members or prospective members, that would be a very good thing.

I started doing these kind of pages when I found that I could keep track of the Net from almost any device known to the technological world - my iPad was the biggest reason.

If you would like to host a quarterly column here to keep the members up to date with what's going on, please email

To summarize, this is not a formal web site just a hobby and hopefully will help to share information for all hams to use and enjoy.
