“QST, QST, QST, this is the Northwest Riverside County District

Amateur Radio Emergency Services net for Thursday, (today’s

Date). A clear frequency during the Net would be appreciated. Net

Control for tonight’s net is (Call Sign) and my name is (Name).

This Net is conducted using the HARP USA Reche Peak repeater

on a frequency of 448.260 -pl 127.3

The net is held every Thursday at 1900 hours.

Our monthly meetings are held at the Riverside Red Cross chapter,

6235 River Crest Drive in Riverside and also start at 1900 hours.

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” button on our website at

ARESNWRC.ORG.

This a directed Net. Please direct all traffic through this station.

This is new and very important when participating in an emergency situation.

This net will cease and give way to any emergency or priority traffic. Is there

any emergency or priority traffic? If so, please come now.

Are there any announcements for this net? If so, please come now.

I’ll call for check-ins now. Please check-in when the first letter of the suffix in

your call-sign is announced.

We encourage all stations to stay through the entire net, but If must leave the

net early please indicate that you are doing a check-in and check-out early.

After the completion of check-ins, visitors will be invited to check in.
