This is <Name>, <Callsign>, serving as Net control for the Yellowknife Amateur Radio Society’s weekly information net.  This net meets each Monday evening at 7:00PM and is open to all amateur radio operators in the coverage area of the 146.940 MHz VE8YK Repeater with a tone of 100 Hz. 

Before beginning the net tonight, if there are any stations with emergency or priority traffic, please call now.

 

<Pause for 5 seconds>

 

The primary purpose of this radio net is to provide the opportunity for club members, and other amateur radio operators, to exchange traffic, news, opinions and information. Additional information and announcements are available on the Yellowknife Amateur Radio Society website, www.ykars.com .

 

  • YARS has the following objects:
    • to foster, encourage and assist on projects which, in the opinion of the members will promote Amateur Radio;
    • to further the enjoyment and understanding of Amateur Radio;
    • to provide assistance and support to Civil Authorities in times of an emergency.

 

YARS is engaged in a variety of activities throughout the year including contesting, VHF/UHF operations, antenna building and testing, DIY projects, ARRL Field Day, RAC Canada Day and Winter Contests, special operating events, and miscellaneous Public Service activities.  Club meetings are held on the last Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM (local time). Please check the VE8YK web site for the posted meeting room location.    

 

This is a directed net, which means all calls are to be made to the net control station unless you are instructed otherwise.  All amateur radio operators are invited and encouraged to check into the net.

 

When checking into the net please announce your call sign slowly and phonetically followed by your name and whether or not you have traffic for the net.  After a few check-ins the net control will pause and review the check-in list.  If your check-in is not acknowledged, then please try again.

 

We will now begin taking check-ins to the Yellowknife Amateur Radio Society information net.  Any stations wishing to check-in to the net tonight, please call now.

Thank you.  Does anyone have comments or questions on this traffic?

Before we close the net for tonight, if there are any additional check-ins, please call now.

<Recite any late check-ins, and let them pass traffic, if any, as done above>

 

I wish to thank all stations for taking time out of their busy schedules to participate in tonight’s net.  Be careful and have a good evening.  Until next Tuesday night at 7:00PM local time, I now close the Yellowknife Amateur Radio Society net and return the VE8YK repeater to normal amateur radio use.

 

73 to all this is <callsign>, clear.
