At the end of the net, the Net Controller is expected to have the following information:
- Number of check-ins
- Number of announcements (also called traffic)
Also, the Net Controller is expected to write down a brief description of each announcement so that he/she can repeat the announcement at the end of the net.

NEW Net Announcement Procedure
With the increase in check-ins, our nets are lasting longer. To reduce the overall time required to participate in a net, we are making a change to the announcement procedure.
Going forward, the net controller will first, briefly announce ONLY the next two or three upcoming CARC events of interest and say, “The details can be found on the club website, W4CAE.com.” Then, the net controller will ask for any fills and for additional announcements not on the website. The time for announcements will be shortened, and our folks will get the information they need.
The webpage, W4CAE.com, is being kept up to date and is a very useful tool. Please check it out. If you see anything missing or incorrect on the website, please contact our Webmaster, Jim W4JLP, by email at [email protected] or click on the CONTACT button above or speak to any of the club officers.
Thank you in advance for your attention to this new procedure.
