Yes, we are still running nets on 80 m. Not as much traffic as there 
used to be, but a great bunch of guys and girls. It is very tight in the 
CW/digital "ghetto" now, but we try very hard to avoid QRMing anyone. 
Contests give us a lot of QRM because the contests go up to 3600. I now 
have 250 Hz filters in my Corsair and Paragon. The Ten Tec rigs are up 
to the task. Additional filtering comes from ancient Trimm Radio 
magnetic headphones!

Check this web site to find out the new net frequencies:


                        73, and CW forever!
