Share your Net topic ideas

Vu2gmn_antenna.jpgContent-wise, there are basically two types of nets, nets without a topic, and nets with a topic. Nets without a topic have a place in our ham universe. They allow friends, or strangers, to just get on and share a story, the weather, a new purchase, or ask a question about some issue they might be having. Subject-driven nets are different, people arrive knowing what the day's subject matter will be. Please note that I am not talking about purpose-driven nets like traffic nets, weather nets, etc. I am talking about HF, VHF, UHF... nets, usually, but not always, run by clubs, to bring hams together.

Which brings me to my ask. This would be a good thread to list ideas for subject matter. I will edit this top post to include the highlights of the suggestions given. I'll start the dance off by putting in some of my own ideas in the next post.

C'mon ham community, let the pile up begin!!
