(5 Minutes before the Net Begins) CQ, CQ, CQ, This is (name-call sign). The LWRA Weekly Net will begin in about 5 minutes.

(7:30 pm) CQ, CQ, CQ.  This is (name / call sign) I will be net control for this evening’s LWRA Weekly net.  This net is conducted every Tuesday evening at 7:30.  You do not have to be a member of the Lake Wales Radio Amateurs club to check into this net.

As a reminder, observe proper check-in procedure. First key your mic and say “Net Control”.  Un-Key and wait to see if anyone may have doubled with you.  If you hear someone, STAND BY, until they are checked in.  Then re-key and check in.  Give your call sign slowly, using the proper phonetic alphabet, and wait to be acknowledged.  Also, when checking in, advise if you have traffic or announcements.  If you have ham equipment you would like to sell, let me know, and I will let you announce it at the end of the net.  You may also send a detailed listing to ‘swap@lwra.us’ so that we can post it on our web site.

Are there any short timers that cannot stay for the entire net, come now.   Looking for short timers only.

The LWRA meets on the second Thursday of every month at 7 pm at the Lake Wales Fire Department Station 1 at 253 W. Central Avenue near downtown Lake Wales. We welcome members and guests to stop by and meet fellow hams.  Directions can be found on our web site at ‘www.lwra.us’.

Our VE team conducts testing free of charge on the first Saturday of each month at the Red Cross in downtown Winter Haven.  We do not take walk-ins.  You may send testing inquiries in advance to ‘ve@lwra.us’.  Further instructions may be found on our web site under the “License Exams” tab.

(At this time, if anyone mentioned an item for sale, call that station for additional information needed, otherwise, continue with the net)
