First Timer's Guide to Mexico

Easy Guide to Mexico Nets for
Baja California & Mainland Mexico

The entire country of Mexico observes daylight-saving time, which means you will be in the same time zone (Pacific) as San Diego until you reach Bahia Tortuga. From there until you reach a line between La Cruz and Puerto Vallarta, you will be the same as the Mountain Time Zone, and from there south to Z-town you will be in the Central Time Zone.

Below are listed the current times of the nets, given in UTC (ZULU) time. It’s up to you to figure out what time zone you’re in to get local time. Note also, that use of cruiser nets has changed substantially due to wide proliferation of HF email.

Please Note: Some times and frequencies may have changed. Also, there may be additional nets for which we have no info here. Please advise us of corrections by email to the . This page was last updated on 7/8/16.
