As of 9 a.m. Wednesday, April 15, there have been 2,075 total check ins to the informal nets, called the “Auxiliary Bored Meetings,” running four times daily on the Bozo repeater. In addition to the nets, local hams have been gathering a couple of times a week on Zoom for internet chats. Details are announced on the daily nets and on this website.
The gatherings take place seven days a week at 09:00, 12:00, 18:00 and 21:00 local time except Sundays and Tuesdays at 18:00 to avoid conflicts with other networks on Bozo. The Bozo repeater is linked with Paul Strauss’ (WD6EBY) repeater network for the 09:00 and the 21:00 meetups giving full Ventura County coverage.
It’s a place where local hams can reach out to each other and exercise their radios and their skills. This is not a formal net, but just a set time to gather on the repeater and interact. No pressure, and no requirements, just a group of hams having fun and chatting!
The Bozo Repeater operates with the following settings:

Stu reports the noon net is the most popular, closely followed by the 9 a.m. net. The 6 p.m. net comes in behind those two, followed by the 9 p.m. net. Here are some graphs tracking Bored Net check ins.
