K4HOG – Hog County ARA – Net Script

Hog County Amateur Radio Association Radio NET – Script

This is:    (Your Call Sign Phonetically and strait.)

Does anyone need to use the frequency before I call the Hog County Amateur Radio Association Radio Net with the Club Call of K4HOG? (Yes, ask if they can move to another repeater or join the net. No, then proceed with the script.)

I am Net Control for today’s net session on (Date). My name is (give your name), my call is (Your Call Sign) and I live in (the area of the county), Sumter County, Florida.

This is a general radio net for the purpose of allowing participants to check their equipment, pass along any pertinent information and just general rag-chew. This net meets each Monday evening at 2000 hours (8:00 PM) Local Time.  This is a Directed Net – please follow the instructions of Net Control and use standard net procedure.

This net meets on the 145.490 MHz Repeater with a tone of 123.0 Hz and is located in Bushnell, Florida. This repeater is owned and operated by Sumter County Emergency Management and we would like to thank them for allowing us to use it.

*** ARE THERE ANY MOBILE OR SHORT-TIME STATIONS WISHING TO CHECK IN?***  (Short-time or mobiles get to go first as a courtesy.)

Note: IF a “Roll Call” is used, at the end ask for any other Sumter County Stations that you did not call to check in. Then ask for EchoLink Stations and then stations outside of Sumter County may check in at the end of the roll call.

*** Check-ins: Okay, I will take local Sumter County stations first, please give your call sign, name and general QTH, please space your calls and speak slowly. Then I will call for anyone on EchoLink to check in, please give the time needed for EchoLink to key the repeater and release the repeater remembering there is a little delay. Then one more check for any other check-ins from our surrounding Counties or anywhere.

*** Take radio check-ins…….please log each one and ask for correction if needed.

*** Take EchoLink check-ins…….please log each one and ask for correction if needed.

*** Ask for any additional or all other check-ins from anywhere.

After the check-ins are complete proceed with the following
