11am Daily: Health and wellness net

Our daily Lake Washington Ham Club K7LWH Health and Wellness net meets at 11AM to provide a daily “check-in” for our members and any licensed amateur operator. The net is operated from our linked Rose Hill repeater system.

This is a directed net. All calls will come thru a net control operator. Please use commonly accepted amateur radio practices and respect for all. This net is open to all stations holding a valid Amateur Radio License. We love to hear from folks, and you will find lots of friends and mentors (sometimes called "Elmers") on this net. If this is your first contact on the radio, please share that with us.

If you are interested in becoming a net control operator, we are also looking for volunteers. It is easy (we can provide you a script on what to say if you wish) and is a great way of sharpening your radio skills. Contact John W7JSM at W7JSM@outlook.com to get a slot.

When checking into the net, please say your call sign slowly and phonetically. Please go slow. This will save a lot of time on the net. When you are done with your report, please remember it is important to sign off using your call sign – to both comply with FCC regulations and to tell net control that you are done with your check-in.

If you just want to say “Hi” and have no traffic you can do an “IO” or in and out. That is fine. Otherwise, we want to encourage you to spend a little time telling us what you are doing to pass the time and if you are well.
