2 Meter report for July, 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 July we had five (5) Wednesday’s, and it went this way:
Date Check-ins Net Control station
July 1 13 KF5KMA – DANNY
July 8 19 KA5PVB – CHUCK
July 15 16 KA5PVB – CHUCK (fill-in for KI5ANQ Scott who’s in Duda, TX tonight).
July 22 16 KG5LMG – MARVIN
July 29 13 N5BBJ – BRUCE
Total of 77 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” (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.
W5RHN – Bob and K5FRN – Fran from Crystal Falls, MI. (3 times)
KI5JTB – Rachel from San Marcos, TX. (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, 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!
Chuck Dobbins – KA5PVB
