Within Washington State there are several nets that meet each and every day.

They meet on the frequency of 7268.5 kHz. with an alternate of 7283.5 kHz. There is a 75 meter version of this net that begins at 1145* for those who can't make the 40 meter net.
There is the Trans Continental Corps (TCC), a group of dedicated amateurs, transfers messages across the North American Continent. The TCC is not a net but a group of designated stations who have the responsibility for seeing that inter-area traffic reaches its destination. Click on the link for more information the TCC.
All times are local Pacific Time.
Then, for those in the Puget Sound area, there is the Evergreen State Traffic System Net on 145.190 MHz. (127.3) and the Puget Sound Traffic System Net that meets at 1730* on 146.820 MHz. (103.5). These local VHF nets provide an outlet for traffic originated by hams who do not have HF privileges and allows them an opportunity to practice handling formal, written traffic on almost a daily basis.
Then there is the is the Beaver State Net on 3920 kHz at 1745*, even though its in Oregon they service Washington too.
Then the Washington State Amateur Radio Traffic System (WARTS, as it's better known)http://wartsnet.org/ on 3975 kHz. at 1800, every evening.

For the CW operators there are RN7 nets that meets at 1930* and 2120 on 3560 kHz (alt. 7048 kHz.) and the Washington Sate Net (WSN) that meets at 0730*, 1845*, and 2145* on3563 kHz. (alt. 7038 and 1818 kHz.). All of these nets meet daily for the purpose of handling traffic. For slow-speed CW operators, there is the West Coast Net (WCN) on 3540 kHz. at 1900*.
These nets are here for the purpose of handling formal message traffic and to get your messages into the NTS system.
Non-hams wishing to avail themselves of the NTS are encouraged to contact a local ham friend or neighbor. There's no charge to send a radiogram. It's one of the ways ham radio serves the public interest. (In case you are wondering, sending grandma a birthday greeting provides ham traffic handlers with practice for emergency communications. And, it's fun!)
More information about the NTS can be found in the ARRL Public Service Communications Manual.http://aa7gc.net/wx/index.html
