Welcome to the New England Weather Net (NEWN) website.

The NEWN was founded in 1955 and meets Monday through Saturday at 5:30 AM – 6:30 AM Eastern on or about 3905 kHz using amateur (Ham) radio.

The primary purpose of this net is to share weather observations from stations located in the greater New England area of the United States. We do welcome reports from stations anywhere and have members from outside New England.

Regular participants will be assigned a roster number to help speed up check-ins but you do not need to be a member or have a number to participate. All amateur operators and short wave listeners (SWL) are welcome to join in.

Enjoy your visit and we hope to hear you on the air!
