Cruiseheimers Net

This net was started by cruisers to stay in touch with each other.

This net is for those using a radio installed aboard their boat.
The Cruiseheimers Net meets each morning at 0830 Eastern Time on SSB 8152 kHz / 8.152 mHz.   The net covers the eastern seaboard, The Bahamas, and parts of the northern Caribbean.

A net control facilitates. Informal.

  • Emergency, medical, and priority traffic
  • Announcements and Queries
  • Check-ins for short-timers  (those who can't stay for the entire net)
  • Boats actively underway check in
  • Boats by region check in
  • Wrap-up. Net usually runs about 30 minutes.

  • If you're aboard your boat, you're welcome here.
  • The net is informal. Use Boat Names, not call signs.
  • Keep it brief. Please take your traffic off-frequency for extended conversations.
  • Use NOAA or the legendary Chris Parker for marine conditions and forecasts.
