The Georgia Training Net is a Morse code training net and meets to train traffic handlers and to pass traffic as part of the ARRL National Traffic System. The net offers training in Basic, Advanced, NCS, Liaison and Instructor training.

The GTN meets daily at 9PM (Eastern local) on 3549 kHz and offers training courses and certificates for completing courses in Basic, Advanced, NCS, Liaison, and Instructor.

Hiram Percy Maxim, W1AW, formed the first training nets to help him get parts for radios that he couldn't get by direct contact or from local sources where he was at the time. So, the Georgia Training Net (GTN) uses some training material that goes back to the start of Amateur Radio and the National Traffic System--it's a little piece of history that continues on today. For more info on the GTN, check their webpage at ad4dx.com/gtn.
