Our VHF FM Net

(This is a possible net format but Net Controllers may improvise)

Good evening and welcome to the Kemptville Amateur Radio Group FM Net.

This net meets on Tuesdays at 1930hrs (local time) on 146.550MHz FM simplex.

This is an informal net, open to any and all licensed amateurs who wish to check in. Operators are invited to test their station equipment, experiment, and discuss items of interest to other radio amateurs.

Some of the net check-ins are usually available after the net, to conduct or assist with special tests on antennas, other modes such as CW and SSB and also digital modes such as FT8 or PSK31.

Net Control tries his best to have the entire net over by 1945 hrs so the demand on your personal time is kept to a minimum.

Net Control station this evening is NAME, CALL, located in FN2? (use 6 digit grid square if you know it)

We will listen for urgent traffic first. Please go ahead. (pause) ...

Now mobiles or hand held radios, please go ahead. (pause) ... Net acknowledges (read back all callsigns heard)

    Our Slow CW Net

    This CW net meets on the first Monday evening of the month, at 1930 hrs (local time) on 28.120 MHz. The purpose of the net is to help us all improve our ability to send and receive morse code (called CW for Continuous Wave). Net Control is usually Don VE3DQN. The net is very informal and tolerant of all types of straight key sending and receiving at relatively slow speeds. Errors are welcome.

    On other Mondays, at the same time and on the same frequency, we encourage you to meet up with other operators who wish to practice their CW and chat with one another. If you do not hear anyone on frequency, do not hesitate to call CQ. Everyone is welcome.
