Nothing But Net!
YACHT EchoLink/VHF Preamble:
There will be two rounds with the second round being the '73' round which concludes the net.
As net control, I will see your call on my screen and will read off each one to start the net. As each station checks in, I will log the call and add to my list. Remember to pause several seconds between calls. When you check in, pause for a second or two, then give your call slowly and phonetically. If you only plan to stay for one round, please mention it when you are called into the net.
Your net control this evening is [Your name and Call Sign], and my YACHT number is [Your YTM/YTC number]. I'm located in [Your QTH].
Please give your membership number if you are a YACHT member, otherwise give your call, first name, and QTH. The net is now open for check ins.
(Keep a list of check ins and email to KG8CX)
