Southeastern North Carolina Traffic Net

Welcome to the Southeastern North Carolina Traffic Net!

We are pleased that the W4LBT repeaters, 147.045 and 147.360 MHz,(+ pl tone 82.5), our primary and back-up repeaters, built by Danny Hampton, are still in good operation.   Coverage for both is very good and has been heard from Burgaw in the East to Conway in the South, Kinston in the North and Rockingham in the West!! 


The purpose of our net is to pass traffic, provide communications during emergencies, provide training in all aspects of net operations; serve as a forum for discussion and to foster fellowship among radio amateurs.

Our Net meets 7 nights per week on the 147.045 MHz 2-meter repeater, W4LBT or on the backup repeater, 147.360 MHz, both in Lumberton at 8:00 pm local time.

The W4LBT repeaters on 147.045 MHz and 147.360 MHz are owned and operated jointly by the Robeson County Amateur Radio Society and the Piedmont Coastal Repeater Network.  They are provided for your enjoyment and in times of Emergency.  The Southeastern North Carolina Traffic Net, an ARRL National Traffic Net affiliate, utilizes the 147.045 MHz repeater.  147.360 is designated as our primary backup repeater.  Please help support these vital repeaters in Southeastern North Carolina.

We have an Emergency Communications trailer equipped with portable repeater which is currently non-functional.  We are currently repairing it so that in the future when it’s service is needed, we will have it available.  This unit has been successfully used in emergency situations such as the major tornado in Red Springs, as one of the only sources of communication, in and out of the storm damaged area, but also in a number of other disaster situations.  We need your help to pay the bills and do other repairs.
