TRI-COUNTY AMATEUR RADIO CLUB
THURSDAY NIGHT NET

Net Controller Script
Last Revised: January 17, 2019

The time is 8 pm and this is      (callsign)     calling the Tri-County Amateur Radio Club's Thursday Night Net into session.
PREAMBLE

This net meets every Thursday night at 8 pm on the NC4AR repeater, 145.290 MHz, with a minus offset and an access tone of 88.5.  If the 145.290 repeater fails, we will use the 147.000 repeater, which has a positive offset and an 88.5 tone.

We are also linked to other local repeaters on 2 meters, 6 meters, 10 meters, 220, and 440.  For a complete list, go to our website, NC4AR.org, and click on "Thursday Net."

This net gives local hams a chance to keep up with club news, ragchew, and talk about any ham-related gear they might want to buy, sell, or trade.  Any licensed ham is welcome to participate.  You do not need to be a member of the club.

This is a directed net.  Address all transmissions to the net controller and wait to be recognized.  When I call for check-ins, state your callsign and name, and say "mobile" or "portable" if you are mobile or portable.  Please do all of this in a single transmission instead of trying to let the repeater drop in the middle of it -- it's better for the linking system.

To keep all the linked repeaters from timing out, we ask everyone to run a "slow key."  Remember that the repeater you hear is not the only one on the system.  They all need to drop between transmissions.  Listen for the squelch tail, let your repeater drop, and then count to three before you key down on the mike again.

For the latest information about the Tri-County Amateur Radio Club, including upcoming meetings, club events, license test sessions in Thomasville, and how to become a member of the club, please go to our website, NC4AR.org.


 
Check-ins are now welcomed from anyone, anywhere.    Please call            (callsign)             , or net control, now.
