Our History

The Net was started November of 1979 by retiring PAN AM pilots. These were the guys that flew the boat/air planes (Pan Am Clippers) that could land and takeoff from water. They flew the Pacific before run ways were on the Pacific Islands. This was long before satellite telephone, cell phone, and the internet. Radio was the only way to communicate in those days. They setup this net to provide communication links across the Pacific. Today we have stations in Japan, Guam, Hawaii, Philippines, Puerto Rico, and many in the states.
