Net Control Script

This is the net control script for the weekly non-emergency net.

 

[Note for Net Control Stations:  Remember to pause and un-key your mike every so often — about once a paragraph, await the courtesy tone, and then continue. Make sure you record every person that checks in by name and call sign because you will have to call on them for news or announcements later.]

 

Good evening.  This is KE7GFZ – Kilo Echo Seven Gulf Foxtrot Zulu.  Welcome to the weekly Net of the Snoqualmie Valley Amateur Radio Club.  My name is (your name/call sign.)  I’ll be your net control station for this evening’s net.  This net is held each Thursday Evening at 20:00 hours local time on the club’s Cougar Mountain Repeater at 441.825 MHz + shift with PL tone of 103.5.  If this repeater fails, then go to the following:

Duvall: 443.250 + shift w/tone 103.5

Carnation: 145.590 no shift w/ tone 162.2

If all Repeaters fail, then we go to 145.590 simplex.

This net is for fellowship, distribution of announcements and news, and for testing readability of the participant’s equipment via the check-in process.   This net should last approximately 10 to 20 minutes, and members and visitors are welcome and encouraged to check in and participate.

Stations with emergency or priority traffic may break in at any point.  Are there any stations with such traffic at this time?

We will now call for the members of Snoqualmie Valley Amateur Radio Club. Visitor stations will be invited to check in following the members check in.  Member stations with call suffixes starting with the letter A – M (Alpha through Mike), please come now with your call sign, name and location. Please speak slowly so I may record your information. [Record calls, names & locations]

Now calling for members with call suffixes starting with the letter N – Z (November through Zulu) please come now with your call sign, name and location.  [Record calls, names and locations]

At this time, the net would like to invite visitors to check-in.  Please speak slowly so I can record your check-in. Please come now with your call sign, name and location.  [Record names, calls, & locations]

Are there any late or missed check-ins?  If so, please come now.

We’ll now check with each station on the Net to see if they have any routine bulletins, announcements, training opportunities or traffic for the Net.  [Call each station in the order they checked in]  

Are there any late or missed check-ins, please come now.

Does anybody have any additional information for the Net or are there any stations wishing after-net contacts?

Take note the 1st Thursday of the month at 1900 hours is the SnoVARC general meeting at Fire District 45 Headquarters, station 66, downtown Duvall, Washington.  The Elmer meeting will be held directly following the regular meeting.  All interested individuals are invited to attend.  Details and locations of these events are located on the web at www.snovarc.org.  Email is info@snovarc.org.

One reminder:  the scheduled Net Control Station for next week’s net is (give name and call sign from NC Schedule).

This concludes the regular operation of the Snoqualmie Valley Amateur Radio Club’s weekly net.   This is (your name & call), your Net Control.

Please join us again next week.  The net is now closed at [give the time] local time, and the frequency and repeater are returned to regular Amateur use.  Good evening from the Snoqualmie Valley Amateur Radio Club KE7GFZ – Kilo Echo Seven Gulf Foxtrot Zulu
