It all started on a cold November evening in 1998. Ken Odom, W4FCW, had just been 'run off' an 80 meter frequency and was looking for a friendly voice to talk to. He threw out a 'CQ' on 3.916 MHz and John, AA9KC, answered him. On that evening, The Freewheelers Net was born and with it the tradition of a frequency that welcomes everyone to the hobby of amateur radio.
In 2007, The Tailgaters Net started as a pre-net to The Freewheelers, from 8:30 to 10PM. In 2011, The 3916 Rag Chew Crew started operating from 7-8:30 PM, Sunday thru Friday nights. And in 2015, The Weather Bunch Net was added, 6-7 PM on net nights.
