Weekly Net Script

[Check-In Procedures]

"Each station will be called once." Call a station only ONCE then WAIT for ALL repeater carriers to DROP.

If no response, move on!

When acknowledging stations, a BRIEF signal report may be added in case of a poor signal (i.e. static, dropping out, etc). Do NOT do late NYC-ARECS check-ins for each Boro list, only after Queens and again after traffic passed. Being a directed net with you as NCS, speak clearly and emphasize capitalized words in the script. Some stations may not be able to hear the net clearly. Do NOT rush through the script. Let your carrier drop every few sentences. If a station tries to cut in, get their callsign first then ask if they have an emergency. Otherwise they are to wait their turn in the check-in process. Never SHOUT into your microphone, but remain calm and in-charge.


[Net Control Station Script]

THIS IS the New York City Amateur Radio Emergency Communications Service Net, held on this repeater meeting Monday nights at 2030 Local Time. The purpose of this Net is to call together members of New York City ARECS and to disseminate information regarding emergency communications, preparedness and related topics of interest. This net is affiliated with Radio-Relay International and is available for the taking and relaying of Radiograms. This is a DIRECTED NET and all communications MUST GO through the Net Control Station AT ALL TIMES. Tonight your Net Control Station is __________ (your phonetic call, name and location). Is there someone willing to act as an Alternate Net Control should this station go off the air? You will need to have both Zello and a telnet or IRC session to the packet chat turned on.

[Check-Ins]

At this time I will take check-ins for the Net in the following manner:
[BE VERY DELIBERATE WITH THESE INSTRUCTIONS]  Net Control will conduct a Roll Call by Boro, of all the New and Active New York City ARECS members on the current roster. Each station will be called ONCE and the repeater's output carrier allowed to drop. [DEMONSTRATE IT] If there is no response, Net Control will move on to the next station. Please respond ONLY with your call sign, OR your call sign and the word TRAFFIC, if you have traffic for the Net. When you are acknowledged, Net Control will respond with the PROWORD "Roger."
Any late check-ins or non-NYC-ARECS stations that wish to join this net will be checked in AFTER the Boros by an open call-up. All Zello check-ins will be done by the Alternate Net Control during the open call-up period ONLY. You should STILL be listening to the net over the air. After you ATTEMPT to check-in, if you are unable to get into the net, feel free to check into the N2NOV packet BBS converse chat channel by using any telnet client and going to n2nov.ampr.org [give the URL phonetically] on port 2-3-0-0. After logging in type C-O-N-V at the prompt to join the conversation.

[Don't Forget Late Check-Ins After Queens and Again After Traffic Passed]

We will now begin call up for tonight's New York City ARECS Net. Give your callsign in phonetics.
