About The BORED Net: The BORED Net is a daily amateur radio net held on the Bozo Repeater (147.885 MHz, minus offset, PL 127.3). It operates seven days a week, with sessions at 9:00 AM Monday through Saturday and an additional net at 9:00 PM on Saturday. The BORED Net includes a weekly swap net, a monthly field event, and an annual picnic, all open to all hams and clubs in Ventura County.

History: The BORED Net started during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown in March 2020 as a way to maintain social connections through amateur radio. Initially, nets were held every three hours, providing a vital source of normalcy and community for hams. The net quickly grew in popularity, involving many who hadn't used their radios in years.

Key Events:

  • Terry Graves Memorial: A 2m simplex contest held during Field Day to honor Terry Graves, K7FE/SK, and to provide a platform for active participation in Field Day events.
  • µField Day (Micro Field Day): A monthly get-together for operating, sharing ideas, training, and socializing. The event often teams up with local clubs for combined activities.
  • Annual Picnic: Held each fall to remember silent keys and to foster community spirit. This includes a net calling out those who were lost during the previous year.

Symposium Activities:

  • Informative talks and presentations on various amateur radio topics.
  • Demonstrations of new technologies and equipment.
  • Opportunities for networking and skill-building.
  • Swap meet for buying, selling, and trading radio equipment.


  • Open to all amateur radio enthusiasts and clubs.

Come and join the Summer Symposium by The Bored Net for a day filled with learning, community, and amateur radio activities!
