Monthly ARES Net Tonight at 8:30 PM on the MMRA Repeater System

Hello to all….

A reminder that the monthly ARES Net for February is rapidly approaching. The monthly ARES Net for March is Monday March 7th, 2005, at 8:30 PM on the MMRA Repeater system. This is after the RACES Nets earlier in the evening.

Based on last month’s net, we have made some revisions to the net process. Net Control will be advising folks that on the first round, you should check-in with your Call-Sign ONLY and then on the 2nd round, you’ll be asked for your name, location, whether you are fixed, mobile or portable, what MMRA repeater you are checked into and give any traffic, announcmenets or
comments to the net. We’re hoping this will improve the process of getting people checked into the net and make the net flow more smoothly. Please follow net control’s lead with the revised preamble.

Make the first Monday of the month, “Emergency Communications Night” and check into your local RACES Net and then check into the ARES Net on the MMRA
Repeater System. We look forward to your participation and remember, we are always looking for Net Controls to run the ARES Net. Thanks to all for your
continued participation!

We will have several interesting announcements for the net this evening and we look forward to everyone’s participation. Updates will be posted via
email and on the Eastern Massachusetts ARES Web Site at

Thanks for your continued support of ARES!

Respectfully Submitted,
