Stir Crazy Net Script

Opening the Net

[OPENING THE NET AT 12:00 NOON]

QST QST QST This is [YOUR CALLSIGN] net control station for the BVARC Stir Crazy Net. This net is meant for the enjoyment of all amateur radio licensees and is a public service of the Brazos Valley Amateur Radio Club. This net meets each weekday, Monday through Friday, at 12 noon local time on the frequency of 146.94 MHz (PL tone of 167.9). All amateur radio operators are encouraged to meet with us starting at noon each weekday.

This is an informal net, that hopes to use amateur radio to help relieve the ill effects of cabin fever created by the COVID-19 virus emergency and is conducted for the fun and enjoyment of all amateur radio operators in the greater Houston metropolitan area. The only thing that net control will be responsible for is listing check-in’s and giving each member their turn to contribute to the net. Check-in’s may call other stations directly during their turn without going through net control.

To check in, please say callsign slowly and phonetically along with your name a QTH (Location)

A little bit about repeater protocol, this repeater has a two minute timer.  If you don’t drop before that two minute timer is up the repeater will drop your transmission and you’ll know not where, and it will make your life miserable, so don’t do that.

This is [YOUR CALLSIGN] and my name is [YOUR NAME]. I am located in [YOUR CITY], Texas. The Stir Crazy Net is now open for check-ins.

Don’t forget to mention BVARC Membership!  Join on the website.

Closing the Net

I would like to remind all members about the BVARC Monday Night Net on this repeater, 146.94 MHz each Monday evening at 8 PM local time and, the BVARC Rag Chew Net each Wednesday evening at 7 PM local time on 3910 kHz (plus or -3 KHz) with early check-in starting around 6:20 PM.
