“QST, QST, QST, this is the Northwest Riverside County District Amateur Radio Emergency Services net for Monday, (today’s date). A clear frequency during the Net will be appreciated.
Net Control for tonight’s net is (your call sign) and my name is (your name).
This Net is conducted using the Repeater on 449.300 with a negative offset and a PL of 103.5 and meets every Monday at 1830 hours except the 2nd Monday’s of the month when we have our monthly meetings.
The purpose of this Net is for ARES members to check their equipment and practice their involvement in a controlled Net. ARES is composed of licensed amateurs who have voluntarily registered their qualifications and equipment for communications duty in public service when a disaster strikes. Every amateur, whether or not a member of ARRL or any other local or national organization is eligible for membership in ARES. The only qualification is an amateur radio license and a desire to serve.
New members can register for the West or Northwest Riverside County ARES districts, depending on your location at ARESDB.COM. You can also join by clicking on the “Join ARES” button on our website at WWW.ARESNWRC.ORG.
