The position of Net Control is an important component of any on-air net. Having readily available trained and confident Net Control operators is essential in 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.


A generic Net Control Script is available in two versions: a PDF document with placeholders for your information, and a Word document that you can edit to include your personal information. It can also be found on the Docs and Maps page.

Net Control Topics

Here is a list of possible Net Control discussion topics generated on the net on Wednesday, June 1, 2022. To suggest additional ideas, use the Contact form:

  • Ideas for solar and battery power and alternatives for small stations or HT radios
  • What gear should go along when scouting a neighborhood for damage?
  • Options for antennas for your emergency “Go” bag.
  • What gear do you currently have, and what gear are you lacking?
