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 (432/386-8052) 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 November we had three (3) Wednesday’s, and it went this way:
Date Check-ins Net Control Station
Nov 4 12 KG5LMG – Marvin
Nov 11 19 N5BBJ – Bruce
Nov 18 14 W5RHN – Bob
A HEARTY THANKS TO ALL FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION IN SUPPORT OF OUR NET ACTIVITIES!!!!!!!!!!
Echo-link Check-ins this month:
KI5JTB – Rachel in San Marcos, Texas (3 times).
KG5HEJ – Al in Terlingus, Texas (2 times)
KG5DW – Don in Denton, Texas
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!
A big THANKS to Scott for his work on the Echo-Link system, it is really sounding good!
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
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!
Either Happy Thanksgiving OR we hope everyone had a GREAT Thanksgiving (depending on publication of our club’s newsletter).
Chuck Dobbins – KA5PVB 2 meter Net Manager
