Net Script

SEMARC is a licensed club station with callsign WØCGM.  The trustee is Dick Roberts, NØUC. The club maintains three repeaters on the 2 meter band. The first is 146.985 with standard (-) offset and an access tone of 74.4 Hz. It is located at Fire Station #3 in Cottage Grove, MN. The second is a duplexed site located in Cottage Grove using a Fusion repeater on 147.180 with standard (+) offset and access tone of 74.4 Hz for FM and DCS 023 for digital. The third site is located in Forest Lake, MN using an analog Motorola 5000 on 147.180 with a standard (+) offset and access tone of 100 Hz. All repeaters have emergency power. The pair of 147.180 repeaters is used during ARES callouts and may not be available for general amateur use during those times; otherwise all amateur operators have use of our repeaters.

The club has weekly nets on the VHF and HF bands to promote interest in our club.  The following lists time and locations:

    At 7:00 p.m. we meet on Wednesdays on 28.110 mhz CW for a round table led by WKØX to promote CW in our club.

    At 8:00 p.m. we meet on Wednesdays on our 147.180 repeater for an ARES Net starting with a check-in of local ARES members and any ARES announcements. We move directly to the club's Activity Net to check-in members and friends, announcements and a round of friendly discussion.  After the activity net, and if announced during the net, we hold an FLDigi digital practice net.  During FLDigi nets we practice our skills using the digital modes for general amateur use or during any emergency preparedness response.  Listen during the ARES net for time and frequency. All are welcome to check in.
