If you are new to the digital world, believe it or not, nets do still exist, just with a twist. Instead of your local hams around your city or county checking in, imagine someone from another country checking into the net. Digital nets are a great way for hams all over the world to share ideas and discuss ongoing radios event all over the world. Every net is different, some take check-ins like normal (verbally), and some use websites where you submit your call and wait to be called upon. This helps keep the net clear and directed since at times, hundreds of people can attend.
