KCARC TWO METER NET OPENING
QST............... QST............. QST..................

This is station ___________ calling the Kay County Area Two Meter Net. This net operates on the W5HZZ repeater on 146.97 in Ponca City , Ok. This net meets weekly on Monday evenings at 9 PM local time. All licensed amateurs are invited to take part in net activities. Your net control this evening is ____________ my name is ____________ and I'm located in ___________.

At this time I'll take check-ins from all stations,  if you do have a comment for the net be sure to mention that, otherwise I'll assume you are for the count only. Please give your callsign PHONETICALLY with your name and location. Go now…

(When everyone is checked in, go to those with comments first, then give the announcements. Use the announcements shown below, print it out ahead of time if you don't have high speed net at home. Usually this is things like the next club meeting, the next Ham breakfast, the next VE session and any upcoming ham fests. Be sure to pause every 5 to 10 minutes and ID yourself and ask for more check-ins. Also, PAUSE every so often long enough for the repeater to drop out, if someone is trying to checkin via EchoLink the repeater has to be off for them to Xmit.)

Closing-
I would like to thank all stations for checking in this evening and at this time if there are no futher check-ins or comments for the net (unkey and listen) I will return the W5HZZ repeater to normal amateur service, this is ________ signing. (You may have to do the closing several times if you keep getting someone with a comment or check-in). After the net, ID yourself and then send 90* to turn off the net beep.
