Hi, everyone. We hold a weekly 2M net every Wednesday night at 8PM (except for the third Wednesday, which is the meeting night) on the W1DC Billerica repeater.
Running the Net is simple and the script is below, somewhat trimmed down from previous versions. BARS would love for you to run the net! Please coordinate volunteering with our Net Manager John, KC1FTJ. You can email him at harmpman at “alpha oscar lima dot com”. Even if you only volunteer once in awhile it really helps our Club. We have a great turnout this week with over 15 check-ins.
I’ll leave the script here until we get a files section set up at w1hh.org.
President, Billerica Amateur Radio Society

CLOSING THE NET
This is (YOUR NAME, YOUR CALL), thanks to everyone who checked into the BARS W1HH Net. Please see the club website at www.w1HH.org for club information.
- Don’t forget to identify yourself and the net every 10 minutes. It’s also good to look for additional check-ins at that time.
- Try not to quick key. Try to leave a space when you go back to a station in case there is an emergency breaker or someone who needs to make a call.
