Approximately 5 minutes prior to the 6:30 P.M. net starts: “Is this frequency clear? (Hearing nothing, continue). All stations on this frequency please standby, the weekly Northwest Riverside County District Amateur Radio Emergency Services net will begin in approximately 5 minutes.” This is (your call-sign).

At 6:30 P.M.
“QST, QST, QST, this is the Northwest Riverside County District Amateur Radio Emergency Services net for Monday, February 15, 2016. A clear frequency during the Net will be appreciated.

Net Control for tonight’s net is (your call sign) and my name is (your name).

This Net is conducted using the Box Springs Repeater on 145.360 with a negative offset and a PL of 91.5 and meets every Monday at 1830 hours except the 2nd Monday of the month when we have our monthly meetings. The meetings are held at the Riverside Red Cross chapter, 6235 River Crest Drive in Riverside.

The purpose of this Net is for ARES members to check their equipment and practice their involvement in a controlled Net. ARES is composed of licensed amateurs who have voluntarily registered their qualifications and equipment for communications duty in public service when a disaster strikes. Every amateur, whether or not a member of ARRL or any other local or national organization is eligible for membership in ARES. The only qualification is an amateur radio license and a desire to serve.

New members can register for the West or Northwest Riverside County ARES districts, depending on your location at ARESDB.COM. You can also join by clicking on the “Register with ARES” on our website at: ARESNWRC.ORG.
