Net Procedures

  • Net begins at 7 PM each night on (or near) 3907kc.and runs about an hour
  • Net Control will control all net operations. Net Control's decision is final.
  • Any member may open the net during times of emergency
  • Visitors are always welcome.
  • Only INFORMAL and HEALTH AND WELFARE traffic will be handled. We are NOT A FORMAL TRAFFIC NET. If a net member is willing to pick up traffic, fine. If not, there are nets that specialize in traffic handling
  • Language and comments should be something a young child could hear. Comments may be about what you like but consider others.
  • Be willing to fill in and be a net controller if one of the regulars is absent.
  • Comments or suggestions for net improvement should be done by contacting the Net Manager directly by phone or email. This discussion shall not take place on the air.

SAMPLE NET CALLER FORMAT- say the following

Calling the Coastal Carolina Emergency Net (repeat 3 times)

This net meets nightly at 7 PM local time for the purpose of handling informal and health and welfare traffic during times of emergency. When there is not an emergency we meet for fellowship, enjoying the hobby of Amateur Radio and carrying on the tradition of this net.

We welcome visitors and non-members to this net and ask that they would wait until net members have been called before checking in. We will honor visitors by putting them near the top of the list during the ragchew portion of the net.

If you have checked in 10 times or more, consider yourself a member and check in when you hear your alphabetic group called for by net control. Keep your own count of check-ins for membership. No one from the net is keeping a record.

Vistiors will be called for after the member check in.

Is there any informal traffic to be listed with the net? If so call (your call)

Are there any relays on traffic?

Are there any mobiles or portables to check in to the net?

Relays on mobiles?

Are there any YL's wishing to check into the net?

We will now go to the gentlemen of the net.

Members in the Alpha/Charlie group call now.

Delta/Golf

Hotel/Kilo

Lima/Oscar

Papa/Sierra

Tango/Victor

Whiskey/Zulu

Late members Alpha thru Zulu

Visitors/Non-members

(We will now go to the ragchew portion of the net)

(at this point go back and pick up mobiles, YL's and visitors, early outs, etc. For the OM's we have followed an A-Z list on even number days of the month and Z-A on odd number days. This has been a net tradition and people will let you know if you have the wrong date!)

(At the end of the net thank all who checked in and all who let us have the frequency and allowed to make the net possible. Sign off and close the net.)
