LAND OPS RADIO NET
Repeater network conversation
DATE: June 28, 2012
TIME: 8:00 PM
REPEATER:[masked] Mhz NO PL
Note: The first few nets we're trying will be an informal (unofficial net) (not posted on repeater web-site.) Therefore we are setting the time, but will yield to any radio traffic and wait til the frequency is clear.
The start time is 8:00 PM, but we will not actually start until we have a clear frequency.
LISTEN ONLY ONLINE: For those who are not licensed radio operators you can listen in here click here to listen only. (http://www.radioreference.com/apps/audio/?feedId=11463) Then click the speaker symbol near the left side bar.
LIST OF PARTICIPANTS: IF YOU ARE A LICENSED HAM. PLEASE RSVP YES TO THIS VIRTUAL MEETUP IF YOU ARE INTERESTED AND YOU WILL BE PUT ON THE LIST FOR RADIO CHECK IN and/or GO AROUND. PLEASE BE SURE WE HAVE YOUR CALL SIGN WHEN YOU RSVP.
Must be a licensed ham to talk on the net. No license necessary for listening in.
What is a radio net?
Basically, it is a meeting over the radio with a net controller who presents a particular subject for discussion and invites other licensed radio operators to have a conversation on topic. Net's can run regularly every week or each night, or just periodically. They can range from just a few people to many radio operators listening and/or checking in.
It has been suggested time and time again that Land Ops should conduct a NET. This will not only help to answer any questions new members might have, and help members get to know one another before actually meeting, but it will also help to generate interest with like minded radio operators listening in.
I would be happy as your Chief game tactician and the founder of Land Ops to start the first net and turn it over to others who would like the opportunity to conduct the net.
As always emergency radio traffic has priority so please follow the net controller and check in when your call sign is called.
