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. If you did not understand their call sign or what they said, do not hesitate to ask for it again.]
