Net Logger

We have begun using the Net Logger program during our Tuesday night nets.  Feel free to log on and follow along online with net check-ins.  The program also has an "almost instant messaging" box where users can enter comments for everyone to see online.  If you're not familiar with Net Logger it is a free download and only takes a minute to set up.  On Tuesday night at 9:00PM just search active nets for "WOODFORD COUNTY ARES NET"

PREAMBLE to initiate Tuesday Night Net:

​​​

(Use 9 tone for 10 seconds)

"Attention all stations, this is (Insert your call), acting net control for the Woodford County Amateur Radio Net meeting on the 146.610 Repeater located in Metamora, IL and the linked 443.175 repeater located at Proctor Hospital in Peoria, IL.  Both repeaters utilize the 103.5 tone. The WCRA repeaters are owned and maintained by the Woodford County Repeater Association for use by all licensed amateurs. Our mission is public service as an FCC authorized RACES net, in cooperation with the Woodford County Emergency Management Agency.  This Net meets every Tuesday evening at 9pm local time and is a directed net. Net control will first take check-ins first from Mobile/ Short timers who are unable to stay for the entire net. We will then take check ins from Woodford County towns followed by internet stations, then all other central IL stations."  

“Are there any mobile or short-timers who wish to check in at this time?” 

 

 "Do we have any check-ins from....  (Carlock; Congerville; El Paso; Eureka; Germantown Hills; Goodfield; Lowpoint/Washburn; Metamora; Roanoke/Benson/Secor; Spring Bay?")

"Are there any Internet connected Stations?"  (Leave longer pause to let the links work); 

 

“Anyone from outside Woodford County?”

 

At close of Net, close with:

 “This is (insert your call), Acting Net Control station returning the 146.61 and 443.175 K9WRA repeaters to general use at (insert time) local time.”
