ARES Script


Make sure repeater is in “net” mode before net starts. Repeater is supposed to do all this automatically, but doesn’t always do so, so make sure to check it.

CQ CQ CQ. THIS IS THE KANAWHA ARES NET. THIS NET MEETS ON THE FIRST SUNDAY OF EACH MONTH—AND ON THE FIRST AND THIRD THURSDAYS OF EACH MONTH--AT 8:30 PM. THE REGULAR KANAWHA AMATEUR RADIO CLUB TWO METER NET WILL IMMEDIATELY FOLLOW THIS ARES NET.
