Preamble/call for check ins
NCS will send preamble and any accouncements then call for check ins.
If you wish to check in, please send the last two characters of your
call. NCS will respond with your 2 characters followed by QRU signifying
you are free to check in with the following exchange:

Your call / QTH / Home / All-OK
(see SOI page 37 for detailed explanation of abbreviated sitrep)
NCS will send an ack and ask for next station (QNI)
At the end of the net – NCS will list all stations heard.
If NCS can copy you clearly, you may be asked to relay a request
for check ins –

and then NCS will standby while you run the net
as ANCS. If you are asked to relay, please send
” de <your call> as ANCS Amrron cw net pls chk in now”
When you are finished pls relay your list back to NCS.
QNS <Call1> <Call2> QNN <NCS-Call>
If no stations were heard send
de <your call> NIL
NCS will ack your list.
If you hear a check in that no one else hears – please send
de <your call> QSP

Finally NCS will close net and send any late announcements
Good luck and have some fun.
