Net Control Station (NCS) Operators are needed for the 2020 Sunday Night VHF/UHF nets.
NCS operators call the net to order at its designated start time, periodically call for participants to join, listen for check-ins, keep track of the roster of stations for that particular net session, and generally orchestrate the operation of the net.
Serving as an NCS operator is a great way to overcome mic-fright, prepare for Public Service Communication events or deployments, and hone your skills as a radio operator. Your service will be acknowledged on the RRRA NCS Operator Leader Board.
The updated RRRAES Frequency list discussed by KD0IOE at the May 2019 ARES meeting has been published on-line. This list is available as an Excel spreadsheet, PDF and CSV files.
The files are stored in the ARES | Documents and Manuals folder on the RRRA File Sharing Server. This folder may be accessed without logging in through a public link (which is listed as RRRA ARES Documents and Manuals on the RRRA Files and Links page.)
Club members who need assistance with their File Sharing Server account should contact the Webmaster Team .
