THE NET, THIS IS A MUST!! NO MATTER WHOM IT MY BE!!!! OR TILL THEIR TRAFFIC IS COMPLETED!!!)
It's midnight in Atlanta Ga. Is the repeater in use?
Hearing no response, This is___callsign___, My name is___name___ and I'll be Turnip Net Controller for tonight's net. As the presiding Turnip, I'd like to welcome all travelers and visitor who may be listening. This repeater is dedicated to the traveling ham. Any properly licensed stations are cordially invited to join in anytime.
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.
