Tarheel Emergency Net
The Tarheel Emergency Net (THEN) is the North Carolina HF ARES net. The purpose of THEN is to
provide communications during emergencies, to provide training in all aspects of net operations, to serve as a forum for discussions and to foster fellowship among radio amateurs. On Monday nights a statewide ARES meeting is held instead of informal comments.
