The position of Net Control is an important component of any on-air net, or any actual emergency situation. Our weekly Eugene Em Comm nets (every Wednesday at 7:00 PM on 146.88 MHz, PL 100) provide an opportunity for volunteers to practice filling this essential position. In an emergency, any one of us may be called upon to function as Net Control, at least temporarily. If you would like to volunteer, (and you are strongly encouraged to take your turn), please use our Contact form to do so.
A generic Net Control Script is available on the Docs and Maps page. There are two versions: a PDF document with placeholders for your information, and a Word document that you can edit to include your personal information.

EugeneEmComm.org is building on the foundation put in place with NEEugHAMS.org to provide web support for radio amateurs preparing to provide emergency communications (EmComm) for Eugene, Oregon and surrounding areas. Licensed HAM radio operators, as well as users of FRS and GMRS radios are working to prepare for emergencies where other traditional means of communication (land lines, and cell phones) may not be available. The group comprises volunteers of diverse interests and backgrounds, but with a common commitment to build and maintain an emergency communications infrastructure. While a possible Cascadia Subduction Zone Earthquake is a primary motivator, the group is preparing to be of service in any emergency where their communications skills may be needed.
