Nothing But Net!

YACHT EchoLink/VHF Preamble:
"Good evening, Welcome to the YACHT youth net, a group function of the Young Amateurs Communications Ham Team. This net is held every Saturday evening at 7pm CST on the <YACHT> conference server #954283. Although this net is targeted to youth hams, any licensed ham is welcome to check in.

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)

YACHT HF Preamble:
No Hf net at this time.

Net Format: Directed but relaxed.

The purpose of this net is to foster camaraderie among the youth members of the YACHT club.  


  • Non-hams may check into the net "third party" if an appropriately licensed control operator is present and identifies as such.
  • Novice and Technician Class hams may check into the net "third party" using their own call sign if an appropriately licensed control operator is present and identifies as such.
    NOTE:  Using a Novice or Technician call sign is ONLY for the purpose of checking into the net, and not for identifying.  The control operator must identify.
  • Anyone can identify using a club call sign as long as an appropriately licensed control operator is present.  It is not necessary for the control operator to identify as the control operator unless requested.
