Michigan Section ARPSC Net Scheduling:

The Michigan ARPSC Net meets each Sunday at 1700 local time near 3.932 MHz. If conditions warrant, the net will meet near 7.232 MHz. These are the designated Michigan Emergency Frequencies. 1.932 is also a designated Emergency Frequency, but at 1700 local time it is unlikely that conditions would require that frequency.

Net control duties rotate among the various districts with a member of the section staff assuming net control duties on the first Sunday of each month. See MI-ARPSC Net Control Schedule
