This is (call sign), net control for this session of the Mendocino Sonoma Counties Emergency HF Net.
My name is (first name) and I am located in (town or location).
The purpose of this net is to contact all areas of Mendocino and Sonoma counties on the HF amateur bands to test our effectiveness in establishing an emergency communications link as a back-up to the already proven VHF repeater systems.
All amateurs in Mendocino and Sonoma counties are encouraged to participate.
Amateurs outside of Mendocino and Sonoma counties are welcome to help test the system.
This net is held weekly on Tuesday nights at 1930 local time on or near 3928 KHz. Should an emergency arise during daylight hours, the alternate frequency is 7245 KHz. During Pacific Standard Time, the net may be held on 1960 KHz.
First, are there any stations on frequency with priority traffic?
Are there any mobiles on frequency wishing to check in?
Is there anyone who must leave early and wants to check in now?
I will now call the roll of the active members.
Visitors, new-comers, or recently inactive members, please wait until after the regular roll call.
Roll Call - don't forget to start looking for a net control station as you begin the roll call <u>starting with the callsign following yours on the list</u>. Then get an alternate. Report NCS and ALT to W6WTI, Net Manger. Don't forget to go back and complete the roll starting at the top of the list.
That is the roll as I have it. Are there are any late or missed members?
Are there any visitors wishing to check in?
Should visitors check in, ask if they wish to be added to the roll call.. if they respond positive obtain the following information:
Location: (town, county)
Emergency power?; (y/n)
Is there any further business for the Net?
This concludes this session of the Mendocino-Sonoma Emergency HF Net.
Thank you for participating. This is (call sign). The frequency is now released for normal activity.
