2m Net Report June, 2020

2 Meter report for June, 2020

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 (432/386-0756) or holler during the Wednesday Net. We could really use a couple of extra hands to be NCS! The script and “check-in roster” are both posted on the club website for you to download and use as a NCS!

The month of June we had four (4) Wednesday’s, and it went this way:

Date        Check-ins    Net Control station                   
June 3              18            KA5PVB – CHUCK
June 10            20            KI5ANQ – SCOTT
June 17            15            KG5LMG – MARVIN
June 24            17            KG5LMG – MARVIN (fill in for N5BBJ Bruce)

  ******Total of 70 check-ins for June! ********

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” (you’re in for the head count, but not participating in the actual net). ALL participation is appreciated and encouraged!

Our Echo-Link System is fully functional, so check-in from wherever your travels take you!

This month we have had check-ins from:
W5JSR – Steve and KK5ROB – Robin from Phoenix, AZ. (3 times)
KG5GBO – John from Baton Rouge, LA.
W5RHN – Bob and K5FRN – Fran from Crystal Falls, MI. (3 times)
KF5RDN – Julianne (former local resident) from AZ.
KG5HEJ – Al in Terlingua, TX.
N5BBJ – Bruce

I want to specifically thank our five (5) Net Control stations for all of their efforts on behalf of the club’s 2 meter net for the entire year. It just  wouldn’t have happened if you were NOT there! Our Net Control Stations are:

KF5KMA – Dan, KG5LMG – Marvin, N5BBJ – Bruce, W5RHN – Bob, and KI5ANQ – Scott

When you see them, thank them for all their efforts for the 2 meter net!

We hope everyone is staying safe in 2020!

73,

Chuck Dobbins – KA5PVB 
2 meter Net Manager
