Flannel NET, 10M Net 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month, 7:00PM

We would like to introduce the new HF 10 meters net. It will take place on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month at 7:00 p.m EST. This is NOT an ARES/RACES net, just a club net.

The following is the script to follow so everyone is familiar with the format.

Opening the Net:

Approximately at 18:45 hrs tune to the net frequency of 28.420 MHz and see if the frequency is clear. If not look for a clear frequency as close to 28.420 Mhz as possible. At this point you should make an announcement on the 146.700 and 146.970 repeaters letting everyone know of the frequency change. If possible, post the new frequency to the club Facebook page http://www.fb.com/k2jji.

If time permits, you can begin taking early check-ins as HF conditions could make taking checkins a longer process then when using a repeater. Tip: If you can start up a QSO with one of the check-ins prior to 7pm, you will establish the use of the frequency and make the net more successful when it’s time to start at 7pm.
