If you are using the on-line checkin web page, please try working with it a bit before you run a net.
The web page is primitive, at best, and it is not difficult to discard your logs with a misplaced click/button-press.

There is no communication between the web server and the logging entries you are making on the web page. A misplaced refresh or back space will bring up a fresh copy of the web page from the icarc server, the result being you loose everything.

You can, at any time, save a local copy of the web page. That local copy can be brought up in your web browser, but practice recovering from a misplaced keystroke before the net.

There are two saved files (at least when using the machine hosting the website), an HTML file with your log entries, and a GIF file (image file: ICARC_Logo_small.gif).
Send the HTML file to the club email listed above and it will get posted to the website.

And, now that you're ready, a few minutes prior to the net call for a signal report to verify your station is working correctly and you're siglan is clear & strong.

Part 1, Introduction

        PLEASE NOTE:
            Do not think with your finger on the PTT key !!!
            If you need time to collect your thoughts RELEASE THE CHANNEL !!!
                Take your finger off ther PTT button !!!
            You may simply give out a "STANDBY" command to indicate you are not releasing control.
            When you hold the channel for extended periods you block EMERGENCY TRAFFIC,
                this is particularly egregious when not talking!
            Participants will patiently wait for you to return.

All stations on frequency this is callsign
calling the Johnson County Sunday Evening Net.
My name is name
and I am located in location.

This net meets every Sunday evening at 7:30 PM. local time
and I will be your ACE or Net Control this evening.
We now meet on the 147.150 machine which is located on the west side of Iowa City.

Please set your CTCSS access tone to 192.8 Hz for this repeater.
Although this is an informal net, it is a directed net.
We encourage participants to share ham radio news.

Stations with emergency traffic may break in at any time
by using the words “break” or “break emergency”
along with their call sign.

        Poll for club related traffic prior to the roll call.
            (the club president, for example)

Club officers are soted at the top of the checkin list,
this to allow for relaying official club traffic.
We will accept traffic from them shortly.

If there is any other high priority traffic please come now.
        We typically hear from the president concerning upcoming events.
        We may hear from the treasurer about how to remit dues.

Part 2, Upcoming Meeting (only on the Sunday prior to the meeting)

            If this is the net before the upcoming
            announce it and ask for who is bringing support
            equipment and such.

The monthly meeting is this Wednesday at the First United Methodist Church of North Liberty located at 85 N. Jones Blvd.
You will find directions in the upcoming meeting section on the main web page.

David, K0LUM, please report on the status of the Zoom link when you check in.

Also, whoever plans to bring a computer to host the meeting, please report your status as you check in.

Part 3, Roll Call

            The participant Roll has phonetic callsigns for your convenience.
            Don't take this as the use phonetics being required! (I just can't always think that fast:-)

I will now call the roll of those who frequently check in.
Please acknowledge with your call sign and let me know if you have traffic.
Net control will typically pick up traffic at checkin. Net control will then reopen the net for additional check-ins.

            The link to the roll call web page may be directly edited and saved.
            You may also print a hardcopy to mark-up the old-fashioned way.
            Note the addition of PS and PDF files that are more compact than
            printing the web page.

        with traffic, call them now, or simply skip this.

I will now call on those stations with traffic.

Part 7, Other Local Nets

            I dropped the list here and simply
            include a hyperlink to the
            "Local & HF Nets" page so I
            don't have to try and update this
            page when things change.

        Link to local nets page

            Use the back button to get back here...

Please see the Iowa City Amateur Radio Club web site at
www.icarc.org for additional nets, frequencies, club news,
and announcements.

Part 8, Final Call


Any stations that are still waiting
to check in, please call now.

            You may have additional traffic to handle here.

Part 9, Upcoming Net Operators

                Refer to the nets.htm Page to find the
                operators for next weeks net.

The Primary net control operator for next week is Primary
if the Primary is late/missing, then the Secondary (Secondary) is expected to jump in and take over
Failing that our last backup is Tertiary
Please jump in to start the net if you don't hear it starting as planned,
        passing control over to the Primary should they make it in.
                If, for example, the Primary would have radio problems at the start of the net.
The net script can be found in the ICARC website by clicking on
the red Local & HF Nets button at the top of all of the web pages.
The participant roll is linked near the top of the Local & HF Nets page.

Part 10, Net Rundown


This completes the Johnson County Sunday Evening Net.
We had count fast !!! participants
including net control and stations checking in via relay.
Wishing you all a good evening and thanks to all who have
participated tonight.

Thanks to the Iowa City Amateur Radio Club for the use of
the WØJV repeater and the WØFDA both of which are maintained by John K0GH.
We now return the repeater to regular amateur use.
This is callsign closing the
Johnson County Sunday Evening Net,
73 and clear.
