Please Note the changes and include them when you NCS a net.

Note: The net frequency is 145.390 with an alternate of 146.640.

Note: The other repeaters you can send people off to for passing traffic are 147.315, 146.910 and 146.640 when not in use.

Note: When you are checking in mobiles Please do not include "Portables" in that part of the call-up. Portables are a base station that has been moved to a different location, or a hand held or handy talky. Either way they are not navigating traffic and are in no danger of an accident. Further more, mobiles do not have to check out where a portable does. As an NCS you can also remind stations who check in as "Portable" that they should check in with the general call up.

Note: If you are new or if you have been with the net for awhile and would like to try to NCS A net. Let Dave or Gary know and we can set something up. I will be there to guide you through the net.
