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 ham
radio net 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 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 Woodford County Emergency
Management Agency. The purpose of this net is to conduct the business of WCRA and to be a forum to
practice efficient emergency traffic handling and net control procedures. This Net meets Each Tuesday
night at 9pm local time and is a directed net. I will first take check-ins from any Mobile or Short timers who
are unable to stay for the entire net. I will then take check-ins from operators in Woodford County towns
followed by internet stations, then all other central IL stations. If you have traffic to share that supports the
purpose of this Net, please indicate that as you check in and you will be given an opportunity to share
your traffic prior to Net Control polling all other stations."


I will now begin taking check-ins, are there any mobile or short-timers who wish to check in at this time.?

”Do we have any check-ins from.... ( Follow the order of the Check List )


At the end 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.”
