New Net Control Operators are always welcome!
The Arizona Desert Chapter 10-10 net is a directed net, with the following general format:
1. A brief prelude, followed by...
2. Member short-time and mobile check-ins...
3. The regular "ground-wave" roll call of member check-ins...
4. Any other check-ins, in or out of state, with or without a 10-10 number.
NOTE: The Ground Wave roll call is alphabetically ordered by call sign suffix--these are the letter(s) following the number in your call.
An example will help:
WB0ABM has the suffix ABM which alphabetically comes before W7ACX. So, WB0ABM would be called first.
You can use this method to figure out where you will appear in the ground wave roll call.
10-10 international members with an Arizona Desert Chapter number are added to the ground wave check-in roll call and are kept on the current list when they check in on a routine basis.
There is no hard and fast rule, but if we have not heard from a station in quite a while, we will clear that call from the list to be fair to the active members.
NOTE on QST's: There is always room for your QST to the members, and these will be called for several times during the net.
Finally, it takes people to make a net! We thank each of you for your continued participation, time, and support of the amateur radio hobby on 10 meters, and we look forward to "seeing" and hearing you on the Arizona Desert Chapter 10-10 net!
