Net Control Assignments
All 2-meter nets listed below start precisely at 1900 hours. On general meeting nights, assigned net-control operators may conduct nets from the OCRACES vehicle when the meeting place is at OCSD/Communications, 840 N. Eckhoff St., Orange. If there is a repeater failure, run the net on simplex, on the repeater output frequency. If you are running the net at the EOC or Eckhoff on a meeting night, arrive at your assigned net-control location by 1850 hours. Use the OCRACES ACS call sign of W6ACS if you run the net from the EOC or Eckhoff. If you are assigned net-control duty and you are not able to serve, it is your responsibility to find a replacement. City EOC stations are encouraged to run County ACS nets if the assigned or substitute net-control operator does not show up at net time. Any other net members (including full time government employees) may also run the net in such a circumstance. Acknowledge all applicant and visitor check-ins by their call signs (not just "Roger"). After signing out the 2-meter ACS net, monitor for stations who may have questions regarding County of Orange RACES. On the fourth Monday, unless special simplex nets are scheduled, net control will conduct first the 2-meter net, then a roll-call-only net (no announcements) on the 449.100 MHz repeater, and then a request for check-ins (no roll call or announcements) on the 52.62 MHz repeater. If net control has no 6-meter capability, fourth-Monday 6-meter check-ins may be taken by any OCRACES member.
OCRACES officers activate pager nets at approximately 1830 hours each Monday night. A numeric page to 146.895 MHz on Monday nights does not need to be acknowledged by the recipients if the priority is “1” (lowest level). If the page is to a different frequency, or a higher priority ("2" for possible activation and "3" for actual activation), or not on a Monday night, recipients must respond on the indicated frequency. A "0" priority indicates deactivation of an event, and a response is not required.
