Net Script

Speak loudly into the microphone!


Attention all radio amateurs!
Attention all radio amateurs!

This repeater located on Charley Culver’s Tower (KD5DLW) will now be used to conduct the business of the Bryan Amateur Radio Club, W5BCS. This net meets on Tuesday evenings at 20:00 local time to discuss items of interest to the club. However, you do not have to be a club member to check in: all hams are welcome!

This is my name, my callsign, acting as net control.

In the event of a repeater failure or if we are otherwise unable to use this repeater, we will regroup on the KD5DLW Bryan repeater, 443.425 MHz.

Club officers this year are:



The following callsigns have already checked in early…

To account for possible transmission delays, let’s stand by for any check-ins from Echolink (W5BCS-R). If you are calling in via Echolink, please give your callsign phonetically and tell us where you’re calling in from this evening…

[wait at least 10 seconds]


Additional check-ins will be taken in groups depending on your callsign suffix. Please give your callsign phonetically and slowly.

[mention the following occasionally…]

If you’re new to Amateur Radio or just need a refresher, your callsign suffix consists of the letters that come after the number in your callsign.


First up, stations whose callsign suffix begins with the letters A through Kalpha through kilo — please call now…


Next up, stations whose callsign suffix begins with the letters L through Slima through sierra — please call now…


Moving on, stations whose callsign suffix begins with the letters T through Ztango through zulu — please call now…

Last call: any station that has not already checked into the net that would like to, please call now…
