P.A.L.S. Preamble



Good evening everyone, this is ( Your Callsign) now calling the PALMETTO AMATEUR LINK SYSTEM, P.A.L.S. Net into session. The purpose of this net is to handle traffic into and out of the coverage area. This net meets nightly at 9:30 P.M local time but may be superseded by Sky-warn in the event of inclement weather, or by any other emergency situation.  All amateurs licensed for this band are invited and encouraged to participate in this net. You may also check us out on the web at www.palsnet.com to find out how you can become a supporting member and for repeater information.

Is there any Emergency or Priority Traffic for the Net, if so, please call ( Your Callsign ) Net Control now.

( Handle Emergency or Priority Traffic first, then move ahead to regular traffic. )

At this time do we have any liaison stations or stations wishing to list traffic, announcements, or bulletins? If so, please call (Your Callsign
), net control.
( If you have Traffic or Announcements use the following )


This is Net Control acknowledging (Their Callsign) with (Traffic, or an announcement or bulletin). I have traffic listed for (location of Traffic). Do we have anyone that can handle this traffic if so please call (Your Callsign). (Run the Traffic , then thank the stations for bringing the Traffic and taking it).  (Then run Bulletins,and/or Announcements,then thank the stations for bring the Bulletins or Announcements.)


(If you have no Traffic, simply say
) Hearing none we will go to short time stations.

This is (Your Callsign
) on the P.A.L.S. net now standing by for mobile or short time stations. Stations that do not have time to remain for the entire net, call (Your Callsign).

(List calls and read them back)  (Call for Mobile and Short Time Stations twice, then move on.)

This is (your Callsign) on the P.A.L.S. Net now standing by for Echolink and Echolink stations only.  Echolink stations please call (Your Callsign) at this time.

(Due to the long turn around delays built into Echolink, please allow at least 10 seconds for the Echolink stations to reply.  There will probably be at least 5 seconds between Echolink stations due to this delay.)

(List calls and read them back)  (Call for Echolink stations twice, then move on)


This is (Your Callsign
) Net Control. We will now move into regular roll call. Roll call will be in alphabetical order. Please check in, in your proper group by using the first letter of your suffix. When checking in, please give net control's call, let the repeater drop to be sure you are not doubling with another station, then give your call sign, name, and QTH. This being (Weeknight) night we will start with the (whatever) group. Please call (Your Callsign) net control and speak clearly and slowly so that I can copy.

(FOR NET CONTROL INFORMATION ONLY: Acknowledge any request for informal contacts, but ask Requestor to wait until  AFTER  the Net report has been given and the Net has been closed to begin their informal QSO.)
