This is the SRQARES Monthly Net. This is the SRQARES Monthly Net. The Sarasota County SRQARES conducts a monthly net for members and visitors. This net convenes on the SAR-1 & 2  [linked] Repeaters, 146.730 and 145.130 MHz (100 Hz), with the SAR-6 Repeater,  443.550 MHz (100 Hz) as an alternate.

Today’s Net Control is <your name> and I am located in <your QTH>.

The purpose of the SRQARES Net is to keep members up to date and to share information about group activities. Also, we use the net to provide training in a controlled net environment.

At this time, are there any announcements?

<listen for announcement calls and let them make their announcement>.

We will now take regular check-ins – one at a time, with standard phonetics, please space out your calls.

<listen for checkins>

Net Control recognizes:

<list all stations checking in>

Are there more check-ins?

<list additional stations>

<After check-ins are complete, give each station a turn to make a transmission – If you have a topic or question, state it at this time, so each station can respond>

We will now take a round of comments…


<Every ten minutes, ask> ” Are there any additional check-ins for the SRQARES Net?”


<After all stations have commented, ask> “Are there any last check ins to the SRQARES Net?”

There being no further for the net, I will close the net at this time. Thank you to all that have checked in and a special thanks to the Sarasota Emergency Radio Club for the use of the repeater. The Monthly SRQARES Net is now closed. Good night and remember to join the next next Net on Tuesday – <look at schedule> – at 7:30PM. This is <your call>.
