LAFD ACS Nets


Monday Night Net

The City of Los Angeles Auxiliary Communication Service Radio Monday Night Net meets each Monday evening at 1930-hours (7:30 p.m.) for the purpose of passing radio traffic to ACS members.

The Monday Night Net is a Directed Net, which means that ACS Members with questions and comments for any ACS Station are acknowledged in the order received and recalled in that order.

The Los Angeles Fire Department manages the ACS Monday Night Radio Net for the Emergency Operations Organization of the City of Los Angeles. All Amateur Radio Operators not affiliated with the Los Angeles City ACS are invited to monitor the Net or are requested to take their traffic to another frequency until the Net is completed.
The Los Angeles Fire Department is proud to have widespread support from the Amateur Radio community in Southern California. If you are a licensed Amateur Radio Operator (aka 'Ham'), or, you wish to become one through our Mentoring Program, we welcome you to join or support the efforts of the LAFD Auxiliary Communications Service (ACS).
