2-Meter Net Report, July 2017

Our 2 meter net meets EVERY Wednesday at 8:00 PM (local time) on the clubs repeater system network. These are good training grounds for potential emergency situations as well as helping new hams in the area to have an easy way to get use to “talking on the radio”!

Our club website (www.bigbendarc.com) has all the information about our 2 meter net. This includes the Net Control members schedule, the “script” (supplied only as a guide to insure that the important information is given out weekly – you can use it anyway you see fit) and a list of the recent check-in members.

If you have an interest in joining the NET CONTROL stations as an operator, please call me (432/837-2257) or holler during the Wednesday Net.

The month of July had four (4) Wednesdays and it went this way:

DATE   Check-ins NET CONT. station 
July 5   15      W5RHN - Bob
July 12  17      KF5KMA - Dan
July 19  16      KG5LMG - Marvin (filling in for KA5PVB) *
July 26  26      KG5BMK - Chuck
 * only check-ins counted as the repeaters (all those solar powered) were operating intermittently and this made it extremely hard to understand anyone.

Total of 74 check-ins for July

If you don’t have the time to check-in to the net and participate in the round-table discussion, take a minute of your time and check-in as an “in-and-out” (your in for the head count, but not participating in the actual net. ALL participation is appreciated and encouraged!

During the month of July we had check-ins from the following ham on the Echo-Link System as follows:

KD5KC – Mike El Paso

*******Special thanks to Al – KG5HEJ for all his efforts to keep us advised of any and all Echo-Link check-ins so we don’t miss anyone! ********

That’s about it from the desk of the 2 meter net!

73, one and all and se ya’ on the net!
