Net Control Script

This is CALL-NAME One minute ‘til Net.   Are there Any Early Check-ins?

Good Evening, this is CALL-NAME , Net Control for the Nevada County ARES NET for this Thursday, MONTH-YEAR.

This is a controlled net, and regular users are asked to please stand by.

If there is emergency traffic, please indicate so with a call of “BREAK – BREAK”. A “double-break” indicates emergency traffic, and the net will hold until the emergency is finished, or can be moved to another frequency.

From Grass Valley, and the greater western Nevada County area, this net operates on a frequency of 147.285 MHz, plus offset, and a PL of 151.4.

From some outlining areas of Western Nevada County you can use a PL of 136.5. From Truckee this net can be heard on a frequency of 147.570, simplex. Also from Truckee, as well as Reno, Tahoe, and the greater Donner area, this net can be heard on the 223.82 machine, with a minus offset, and a PL of 100.0.

Persons interested in becoming an ARES member are asked to visit our web site at, NEVADACOUNTYARES.ORG. Click on the “Join ARES” link at the top of the page and from there you will find a link to register at the ARRL Ares Connect website.

The net welcomes announcements of interests. Are there any announcements for the net?

At this time, I will begin calling the roll.

Are there are any late or missed member check-ins? If so, please come now.

At this time, the net would like to take check-ins from any allied served agencies. Are there any served agency members from Red Cross, Salvation Army, Hospitals, County or State OESs that would like to check in? If so, please come now.

The Nevada County ARES net encourages guest check-ins.  Are there any guests wishing to check in at this time?

Hearing none/no more, the Net would like to thank those who checked in and the regular users for standing by.  The Net would also like to thank the repeater control operators for their assistance.
