NET CONTROL SCRIPT

(VERSION 10/07/2013)

This is a script you can use while conducting the weekly CREST net.

Please do not start the net until 2000 hrs, as many members do not monitor radio traffic until that time. Remember we are not allowed under FCC rules to "Blind Broadcast" so do not make an announcement or start the net without contact from another unit.

Every 10-Minutes, the FCC requires you broadcast your name and GMRS license number; as an example:

This is Ray / WQIR250 / CREST 58.

NOTE: Words in italics are for reference only and not to be broadcast over the air.


START HERE: To be broadcast by Net Control

CREST (Unit you are calling) This is CREST-(State your Unit number)

If the unit you make contact with does not clear with call sign, please ask them to do so before continuing.

After acknowledgment from a CREST Team Member:

Before the CREST Communications Teamís weekly net starts, does anyone have any emergency traffic or last minute contacts before we begin?

This is State your first name/ GMRS license number / CREST-(State your Unit number)

BREAK (Pause momentarily and listen for any traffic; then continue your script)

The CREST repeater being used for the net tonight is located on Santiago Peak and operated on the frequency of 462.675 MHz, with a tone of 141.3.

This net is called every Monday evening at 8:00 PM in order to exchange information regarding CREST activity, also to test radio equipment and practice good communications procedures.

BREAK (Pause momentarily and listen for any traffic; then continue your script)
