Welcome to

SWAN Radio Network Communications

Some events stir emotions that are extremely difficult to express in words. Any commentary attempting to explain the horrible loss of human life during the sneak terrorist attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon Tuesday September 11th would indeed be woefully inadequate.

Swan amateur radio net operations are conducted by amateur radio enthusiasts interested in employing amateur radio equipment manufactured by the former Swan Electronics of Oceanside, California. Swan User Net organizers also support the retention of electron tube technology and provide on-the-air associated technical discussions at scheduled net meetings. Current Swan Net schedules: Swan User Net - NOTE CHANGE: Sunday 2100GMT on 14250Khz. Swan Technical Nets - Wednesday 2300GMT on 14251Khz. Saturday 2-4PM eastern time on 7235Khz.

Those unable to check-in during scheduled net meetings can access our various on-line "QSO" rooms or subscribe to our Swan-Net mail list. Both the QSO room and Swan-Net mail list options are powerful methods of contacting other Swan and vintage radio enthusiasts for the purpose of exchanging greetings and technical information.

Our Swan Newsletter

The current Swan News is issue #10 and has been mailed to those on the Swan Radio Net mailing list. The text version is available to anyone via E-Mail.

Swan Net Activities

The primary intent of the Swan Net is to showcase our Swan equipment on the air and exchange any needed technical information. However, both the Swan User and Swan Tech Nets are open to all amateur radio stations - many of our regular check-ins employ other brands of vintage American radios as well as a few giving us a taste of something from the Orient.

Swan Net Jamboree 2002

The inaugural Swan Net Jamboree is in the books! A year ago Jim Singleton had a vision which he shared with all Swan Net participants and Swan radio collectors. "Why not arrange and conduct a special event for the Swan User Group?"

Through hard work and well thought-out planning, that vision became a reality in Las Vegas during the weekend of 20-22 September 2002. With untiring help from Jim's wife Sandy, the couple organized one of the most orderly and finest social gatherings that the majority of attendees had ever witnessed. A precedent has certainly been set for any Swan Jamboree organizer that may follow in the years to come.

Photos of the event can been seen at: Swan Radio Jamboree 2002

Since many of you present lit up the hospitality and banquet areas with flash cameras, there may have been other interesting images captured. In fact, anything you have on film that is associated with your trip to and from Las Vegas might be of interest to others. Such photos can be e-mailed to Sy609@juno.com or paper mailed to Stu/K4BOV for possible inclusion on the Swan Jamboree 2002 page.
