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.
The month of March we had five (5) Wednesday’s, and it went this way:
Date Check-ins Net Control Station
Mar. 2 24 W5RHN – Bob
Mar. 9 26 KI5EXF – Sharon
Mar. 16 21 KF5KMA – Dan
Mar. 23 22 KA5PVB – Chuck
Mar. 30 26 KI5EXF – Sharon (switched with KI5ANQ – Scott)
MONTHLY TOTAL – 119 (probably the highest monthly total ever)!
A HEARTY THANKS TO ALL FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION IN SUPPORT OF OUR NET ACTIVITIES!!!!!!!!!!
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!
Echo-Link System check-ins were as follows:
KD5KC – Mike – El Paso (5 times)
K5RIC – Ric – Nogal Mesa, NM. (5 times)
K5LON – Lonny – Van Horn (5 times)
W5MOX – Jerry – Alpine (3 times)

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, W5RHN – Bob, KI5ANQ – Scott and KI5EXF – Sharon.
Chuck Dobbins – KA5PVB
