Of course priority will always be given to any station with Emergency Traffic. In a moment I'll begin taking check-ins for the Turnip Truck Net. Listen carefully, Please check in By Saying; "This is" unkey wait for the tone, Then continue with Your "Callsign", "Name", "Location", and if you have any traffic. Please go slow I am a Turnip. If you are mobile, Low power station or if you are located outside the Atlanta area please let me know when you check in. Also even though this net is made up of turnips and other vegetables, all stations are required to use good operating procedures. Don't quick key leave room for other stations to join in or ask to use the repeater.

(Original Preamble)
"Come Ye All Hams And Halfwits"
Coming to you live from the Turnip Patch. This is the one and as
far as we know, The only Turnip Truck Net. This is the saturday/friday night
calling of this world famous net and as long as we don't loose our
sponsorship form the greater Snellville Turnip Juice Company,
we will continue to bring this net to you saturday and friday night at midnight.
Most of our check-ins have IQs of less than 20 but if yours is more
than 20 and you are having problems understanding or communicating with
the other check-ins this probably means you are to smart for the net.
This net gives special recognition to all mental patients especially
those with frontal lobotomies. We must caution you that once you have
checked into this net you will be forever known as a Turnip.
"WARNING" What you are about to hear are the voices of many happy but
not so bright Turnips. (any new or old announcements)
I'll now be taking Check-ins, remember please go slow.
(See Check-in Procedures)
Closing: I'd like to thank all fellow turnips for checking and the
Alford Memorial Club for the use of the repeater. This net is
off the air at ____time____. Returning the repeater back to
abnormal use.
