ARES Net Preamble:

Good evening,

Welcome to the Tri-County Cooperative ARES & RACES Net. My name is (your first name), (your call sign) and I will be your net control this evening.

 

This net meets every Sunday night at 8:30 PM or whenever its services become needed. The primary repeater frequency is 145.470 with a tone access of 114.8. The backup repeater frequency is 147.000 with a tone access of 107.2. This is a directed net which is open to all ARES & RACES Stations in all locations that are within range of this repeater system.

 

The purpose of this net is to ensure proper understanding between ARES & RACES stations, to share information, and to become better prepared for public service emergency communications.

 

I will now take a standby for any emergency or priority traffic. Please call (your call sign), your net control station.
