Now calling net liaison stations or stations with written message traffic call now.

Now calling mobile, portable, and echolink stations, call now.

Now calling all others stations, call now.

After each check in repeat their callsign, and name then go onto other checkins, repeating each callsign as heard and ask for corrections or clarify any callsign not understood.

Ask all stations who did not say “no comment” the opportunity to comment.
Club announcements and business are to be discouraged– as the purpoae of the traffic net is to pass written n.t.s radiograms.

Last call for any check-ins…..
