MIDLAND COUNTY PUBLIC SERVICE NET - 9:00 P.M. - THURSDAYS

QST. QST. QST. Good evening everyone. This is (your call sign). Welcome to the Midland County
Public Service Net. My name is (your first name) and I’m (your official position, if none just use “net
control”) in (your location)

This net meets every Thursday at 9:00 p.m. local time on the Midland repeater on a frequency of 147.000
MHz with a positive offset. Those located west of the city should use a pl tone of 103.5 to access the
remote receiver. On the first Thursday of the month there will not be a net because of the Midland Club
meeting at 7:30 p.m. at the Salvation Army Building at 330 Waldo in Midland.
First, is there any emergency or priority traffic for the net?

I will now take check-ins, with or without traffic. When checking in, give your call sign, first name,
indicate if you have traffic and let me know if you are mobile. I will try to give mobile operators priority.

(TAKE CHECK-INS AND ACKNOWLEDGE THE CALLS HEARD)

Welcome to the net. (If you have announcements, please announce them at this point, if you do not have
any, ask if anyone has any announcements they would like to make.)

If John, W8QN or Chris KB8UIH has checked in ask him if he has an EC report he would like to make at
this time.

Let’s pause and ask if there are any more people who would like to check-in?

(TAKE CHECK-INS AS BEFORE)

The topic for this evening is (Main Event).

Ask the mobile stations for their comments first, followed by the other stations in the order they checked
in. Pause occasionally to ask if there are any other check-ins.
After all stations have been asked to participate ask for any final check-ins. If none, ask for final traffic.
If none, close the net.

Thank you to all who checked in. This concludes the Midland County Public Service net for this evening.
Net control for next time will be (call sign if you know who it will be). Join us at 9:00 p.m. next Thursday
(or two weeks from now if this is the last Thursday of the month) on this frequency. This is (your call
sign). Good evening and I am returning the repeater to normal amateur use.

MAIN EVENT

The main event is supposed to be some item of interest to amateurs, and related to public or emergency
service. It can be an information presentation, a roundtable discussion, a proposal for action, a request for
information, a message exercise, or whatever the presenter wants to try. Don’t feel it must be elaborate.
Some of the best have begun with a seemingly simple question. After an emergency or public service
activity, the Main Event can be a critique: what we did well, what could we do better next time. The
purpose of the net is to help us all become better emergency communicators when the time comes that we
are needed. Anything that promotes the purpose is welcome as the Main Event.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION.
