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 July we had four (4) Wednesday’s, and it went this way:
Date Check-ins Net Control Station
July 6 20 KF5KMA – DAN
July 13 21 KI5ANQ – SCOTT (fill-in for KA5PVB with rig problems)
July 20 16 KI5ANQ – SCOTT
July 27 19 KG5LMG – MARVIN MONTHLY
TOTAL – 76
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!

KD5KC – Mike – El Paso (3 times)
K5RIC – Ric – Nogal Mesa, NM. (4 times)
K5LON – Lonny – Van Horn (4 times)

I want to specifically thank our six (6) 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, KI5EXF – Sharon and KI5SNZ – John.
