Good Evening Everyone and Welcome to the Monday Night, Lubbock County, Lubbock Amateur Radio Club ARES Net.
This is (Your Call Sign) My Name Is: (Name)
I will be your net control station for this session of the Lubbock Amateur Radio Club ARES Net. This is a Directed Net, which means only transmit when directed by net control.
This Net meets every Monday evening at 2000 hours (8:00 p.m.) under the auspices of the Lubbock County ARES group.
The purpose of this net is to provide training and practice in emergency communications that could apply in an actual emergency and to test the communications capabilities of the Lubbock Co. ARES group.
All licensed Amateur Radio operators interested in Emergency Communications, are invited and encouraged to participate in this net.
This net makes use of the NetLogger logging program to transmit check-in information to other users of NetLogger.
Net participants that are monitoring the net with Netlogger receive updated information every twenty seconds, detailed check-in logs, and an AIM chat window.
The program is free and available for download at netlogger.org
We can walk you through it as you check in. It only takes a few seconds to have you up and running.
Please remember that this net is a directed net. Please follow the instructions of Net Control.
Please stay on frequency until released by net control.
Please give your call sign phonetically, using standard ITU phonetics.
This is not a traffic net but it does stand ready to accept and pass emergency or priority traffic.
If anyone has an emergency during the net, please state the word “emergency” followed by your call sign and the frequency will be turned over to you for the duration of the emergency.
