Opening the net
CQ CQ CQ, all amateur radio operators. Calling together the Suffolk County Radio Club Rag Chew Net. This is (your call sign), your net control station for this session… Before continuing with net, is there any station with Emergency or Priority traffic at this time?
(pause) note: If there is Emergency or Priority traffic, turn repeater over to them till duration of the E or P.
We meet every Wednesday night at 2000 Hrs on the W2DQ repeater, and will have tech questions, swap n shop items, upcoming events, and other items as wished by our net log-ins.
We encourage all licensed operators to check into this net. You do not have to be a member of our club to join in the net. This is a MODERATED net, and we ask that you do not break into the net without the direction of net control.
We use the hesitation method. When checking in say: “This is”, then release the key and pause to see if you are doubling with anyone. If not, then proceed to give your call, your name, and if you have any traffic, or questions for the net.
I will now stand by for our regular net check ins at this time.
(acknowledge check ins).
I will now stand by for Echo link check ins at this time.
(acknowledge echo-link check-ins) Handle all traffic, all questions, and pass on information—open net for discussion topics.
Closing the net
This is (your call sign), Net control station for the Suffolk County Radio Club weekly rag chew net, thanking all of those stations that checked in this evening for participating and supporting the net.
Ask for any late check ins or final business for the net or comments, and then close the net.
I want to thank those stations that did not check in for standing down while this net was in operation. Your help in maintaining this net is appreciated by one and all. All stations may now secure at (time in military time) hours local time. This is (your call sign) returning the W2DQ repeater to its normal amateur operation. Good Evening.
