Good Afternoon Everyone,
Net Control for the February 4, 2017 Eastern MA Hospital Net will be W1SSH The South Shore Hospital Amateur Radio Club
The February Net will include the newest addition to the repeaters available for our use, the Boston Amateur Radio Club’s W1BOS repeater located in Boston. Hopefully everyone that didn’t already have it programmed into their radios will have an opportunity to program it in or bring it up in VFO mode for the February Net. It will be exciting to see how many participants are able to use this repeater.
The net will commence at the usual time of 10:AM using the following repeaters in the order listed.
1. Plymouth 146.865 tone 82.5
2. Boston 145.230 tone 88.5
3. Falmouth 147.375 tone 110.9
The Net will than return to the Plymouth Repeater for final comments and Net closing.
NET Protocol: Please wait for Net Control to ask for Check-ins. When asked to check in please use the standard net check in procedure which is: Here is.., un-key, wait 3 seconds to check for doubling, then give your or your facilities call sign, your first name, and your facility’s name.
We extend an invitation to the EOC of any city or town that is served by one of the participating hospitals to join the Net. We also extend an invitation to any RACES or ARES member to check in during the NET.
Any hospital wishing to join the net that needs assistance with equipment or personnel should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can assist you with getting your location on the air.
We are always looking for groups or organizations to try their hand at Net Control duties. If you are interested please let us know. Our goal is to rotate Net Control practice and the experience among as many groups as possible.
We thank the repeater trustees for their generosity in allowing us to conduct the monthly nets and the use of their systems in an actual event. The following list of repeaters are available for our use. Only a few systems are used each month with the selection of those used made by Net Control for that month.
