A Worked All States and DX Net

Amateur Radio's Late Night Net on 40 Meters

*** VACATION ANNOUNCEMENT for W7FTT ***
and Annual
NYE QSO Party

I will be out of town from November 24, through the end of 2014!
Those individuals working on awards/endorsements are asked NOT to
send any requests from November 16 until after January 4, 2015.  One
exception, and ONE only:  Those desiring their initial WAS Award
 may send a completed form (after you have all the necessary QSLs)
 to my e-mail address, listed below, and if acceptable, I will issue you
 your number under the 'Recently Issued Awards' section of this Web
  site.  Only after you see your award number listed, may you use your
number for future QSOs/awards/endorsements.  I encourage all NCS
stations to check this same page daily while I am gone, and whenever
you run the Net, to announce these new numbers to the group after
check-ins have been gathered.  Lastly, if you suspect a problem, mistake,
or otherwise, contact me directly via e-mail...NOT someone else.

Please send the application fees and a copy of your original WAS form
(you e-mailed me earlier) to my home address.  I will issue the
certificates upon my return in early January, 2015.

I will be running the Triple H Net Annual QSO Party on NYE
from my QTH in Oregon.  REMEMBER, this is January 1, 2015 UT,
which is NYE, December 31, 2014 stateside.  It will start about one
hour earlier than our regular net at 0600 UT.

The Triple H Net was founded in 1976 by W2LTP, Hank Greenberg,

as a Worked All States and DX Assistance Net.

This web page is dedicated to those many silent keys and previous members

THE  TRIPLE  H  NET  HISTORY

Over the past 37 years, the Triple H Net has awarded over 925 Worked-All-States  certificates
to radio operators in all 50 states and 17 DXCC countries.  However, there are over thirty other
types of award certificates one can obtain for the various kinds of contacts made on the Net, the
majority of them capable of multiple endorsements.  The first net secretary,
Irwin Mattes, WB8SSR (now a silent key), used to make each award by handAs more award
possibilities were introduced in the middle 1980's, WB6FNI (now W7FTT) was asked to make all
extra award certificates.  When WB8SSR became a silent key, then all awards were generated by
W7FTT using 'publisher' software and new ink-jet printers.  The number of issued awards and
endorsements are now around 5300!

The Net operates 364 days/year on a frequency of 7.190 mHz, starting at 0700 Z.  The first thirty
minutes are dedicated to check-ins, with preference given to DX stations first and foremost.  The
stateside check-ins are taken according to call districts that coincide with the day of the month.
On New Year's Eve, there is the annual Triple H Net QSO-Party, held exclusively for only net
members (those who have earned WAS certificates on the Triple H Net).

The Net has a free and open  QSL Bureau , first operated by Bernie Chap, WB0EYT (now a silent
key), currently operated and maintained by Roger Attwell, WN7M, of Everett, WA.  Roger is also

the other official 'officer' of the Net, and maintains the Net Control Station (NCS) duty roster.

Don Goff, AB5BG, is the Net Proctor and Observer, helping to maintain the well organized
Net operations and courteous manner of check-ins, along with the relay station protocol.

There are a number of official Net Control Stations (NCS's) that maintain and control the nightly
operations, even under and despite difficult band conditions.  Mark Nodine, KJ6MS, and Mike
 White, W4MTS, are the Net's 'senior' NCS's.  Others include Bruce Kocher, KI0JG, Barbara Heck,
 KD7YOZ, and Kevin Gold, KC7ASA.  W7FTT and/or
  others run the net operations
Friday nights.

There are many other stations that help as 'officially designated relays'.
