Weekly ARES - RACES Net W3KG Repeater

446.775, pl 88.5, Monday, 1930 Hours

All Amateur Radio operators are encouraged to participate in the weekly Delaware County ARES-RACES Net held each Monday evening at 1930 hours local time on the W3KG 446.775 repeater in Bethel Township in the southwestern part of Delaware County. The pl tone for the repeater is 88.5 Hz. The directed net is used a drill and emergency communications protocols are followed. Important announcements concerning operating activities and upcoming events are made during the net. ARES team members are encouraged to operate via emergency power during the weekly nets to test batteries and equipment. Hope to hear you there!

The weekly net affords all Amateur Radio operators an opportunity to practice using emergency communication techniques during the directed net and to test equipment on a regular basis. The net also provides a conduit to relay important operational information to team members.

Because the weekly net is employed as an emergency communication exercise, all personnel checking in should keep their comments brief and of a nature relating to Amateur Radio. It is not a chit-chat net.

When checking in, it is highly encouraged to utilize the ITU phonetic alphabet for clarity and practice for passing traffic.
