Net participation Award 2021 – Ending Dec 6th, 2021.
This award is to encourage participants to take leadership roles, provide training as net control operators, and learning to help manage a net using NETLOGGER. Any licensed amateur may participate that is a Technician class or higher. If the requests for net control and logging exceed the available nets for each quarter, the roles can be split during a net session to earn a bonus provided the requests are received in advance so it may be scheduled.
CHECK IN ONLY (IN/OUT) – 1 POINT (WEEKLY)
CHECK IN AND COMMENT – 4 POINTS (WEEKLY)
LOG NET WITH NETLOGGER – 10 POINT BONUS (ONCE PER QUARTER – MUST TRAIN WEEK BEFORE LOGGING IF NOT LOGGED BEFORE)
CALL NET – 25 POINT BONUS (ONCE PER QUARTER – MUST REQUEST IN ADVANCE UNLESS AG4OB IS UNABLE TO CALL THE NET)
Stations must check in via RF or Netlogger or relayed by phone to be counted. Phone relays must be done during early checkin or during the net. If you are out of town, your AIM window comment will be relayed by Net Control or the Logger to the net when you are called. To receive credit for a comment, you must submit one during the official net time. Stations that are mobile (traveling) may ask for priority during check in to comment if their travel time is limited OR they anticipate being in the fringe coverage area of the repeater when called.
The rules are being modified to allow those who are not able to participate in previous quarters to qualify for the drawing. Each quarter through Dec 7th, the high scorer for that quarter will be given a chance for a prize drawling at the DEC 7th 2021 Club meeting. A participant may only qualify once for the drawing and if a participant is the high scorer or tied in another quarter, then the next highest scorer will qualify for the drawing. If there is a tie with 2 or more participants in a quarter with equal high scores, then they will both be qualified for the drawing provided one was not the high scorer in a previous quarter. Certificate awards are under development and may be awarded for highest score in a month, quarter, and the year.
There is no requirement to be a club member to participate. N4FV will be the official scorekeeper. N4FV and AG4OB will not participate in the scoring. The top scorer will be posted after the first of the month on this page. Please do not ask for your accumulated score during the net. All scores are taken from the Netlogger log kept by or submitted to N4FV. Logs for any net will be provided upon request.
Net control stations are marked as (nc) and awarded TWENTY-FIVE (25) points as a bonus once per quarter in addition to the regular participation score.
Logging stations are labeled (log) and awarded TEN (10) points as a bonus once per quarter in addition to the regular participation score.
All stations that check in are awarded ONE (1) point. If they check in and out or do not answer for comments they are marked as (c/0) – checked in and out and awarded only ONE (1) point.
As each station on the list is called, it is logged and that is indicated by a (w) and awarded FOUR (4) points for a total of FIVE (5) points earned for each net participation. (nc) and (log) stations also earn FIVE (5) points for participation in the net in addition to any bonus.
