CQ, CQ, CQ – Calling the Gwinnett Amateur Radio Society Know-It-All Net.
This is <NCS call sign phonetically>, <NCS call sign> with the GARS Know It AllNet and I am your net control this evening. For those who do not know me, my name is <NCS name> and I am operating from my home QTH in <location>, using the GARS Echolink W4GR-R, the two meter repeater located in Gwinnett County Georgia.
The GARS Know- It- All Net is an open net. You do not have to be a member of GARS to participate in tonight’s Know- It- All Net. The topic of discussion for tonight’s net is <topic>.
This is a less formal but directed net. The format of the net is to start with a Kick-off intro to tonight’s topic on <topic>.Take check-ins, followed by Q & A. Stations checking in will indicate if they have a question on the topic. If you are a new Ham you may ask a question about any topic.The Guest will call only stations with Q & A and regularly return to net control for additional check-ins. After the formal net closes, stations are encouraged to continue discussing the topic or amateur radio related topics.
I’d like to have an alternate net control as a back-up in case my station is unable to continue. The alternate net control needs to write down the check-ins and simply be ready to take over during the net if necessary. Is there any station that can serve as an alternate net control tonight? Please call <NCS call sign> now.
