Welcome to The 3905 Century Club
The 3905 Century Club is an international amateur radio club founded in 1977. For over 40 years the club has operated the premier Worked All States, DX and awards nets on the amateur bands and has thousands of members across the globe.
If you want to earn your WAS award or other fun awards this is the place to do it. We run nets on 20m, 40, 80, and 160m in SSB, RTTY, PSK and CW modes. We also offer over 40 awards.
If you're ready to get started see the net schedule below for today's nets and come join us. If you need more information please look further down on this page for additional information or contact our Member Communications and Services Manager,
October is house cleaning time at the buro. Any station with even 1 card in their file will be sent this weekend for the remaining call areas. This will be done regardless of the postage on user supplied SASEs. This is done annually to clear out any lingering cards that do not make the weight worth mailing. We should be back to normal operations by October 18, 2021. Thanks, Rob KB8UEY
The frequencies listed above are the scheduled primary frequency of the net.
All nets are to operate +/- QRM.
A ZULU/LOCAL Time Conversion Table is available if needed.

Brief Overview of how the net works:
At the start of a net, the Net Controller (NCS) creates a check-in list using NetLogger.
After taking check-ins, the NCS will run thru the list allowing each person to call to any other person on the net. The NCS will declare a contact to be valid if the signal reports are confirmed correctly.
When it comes time for a station to make a call, that operator has three options: they may
- make a call to a station they hear
- go “up for grabs” (an invitation to anyone to call) or
- "take a pass"

Exchanging QSL cards is the lifeblood of the club and a requirement. Please consider using our bureau. This link will take you to the bureau page. Using the bureau to exchange QSL cards will save you a significant amount of postage and is free except for postage costs.
The club uses NetLogger for logging check-ins live during the net. NetLogger is free.
