"Net Control" operators in the community take turns running the weekly net.
Neighborhood Radio Watch communities hold weekly radio safety nets so residents can ensure their radio equipment is working correctly, to practice radio communication protocols, to hear and share any local announcements on relevant safety topics, and for community residents to ask questions about programs and radio equipment.
A community resident must check into a weekly net periodically to be considered active. Those who haven't checked in for 6 weeks in a row are placed on the inactive list until they check into the net at which point they are placed back on the active list.
Our Net Control operators love to see visitors from our five Neighborhood Radio Watch groups check into their nets. Feel free to do just that. You may be surprised that you can even hear one of our other repeaters. In come cases, you may actually find that you can hear one of our other repeaters better than you can hear your local NRW repeater.
Please consider volunteering to be a Net Control operator to hone your radio skills. Net Control operators should have a base station radio (vs a handheld radio) to ensure the community hears a clear, quality signal.
