We are needing additional net control stations to volunteer for our weekly Sunday night and monthly Simplex nets. All members are welcome and encouraged to try their hand at running one of our nets.
A script is provided to assist you in directing, if needed. Operating as an NCS helps with giving you a different perspective of net operations. Please take a look at the schedule for both nets and decide which one you would like.
You can send an email to us through the contact page or directly by email at .
