5 Minutes Before
Attention all stations. The Sacramento Valley Multi-city CERT net will begin on the K6MVR repeater at 20:00 hours pacific time. Thank you in advance for the use of this frequency. This is NAME, CALLSIGN, net control for this evening and standing by for the net.
Good evening, this is the Sacramento Valley Multi-City Community Emergency Response Team net. I am NAME, CALL, net control for this evening. This net is for Sacramento Valley CERT teams and residents to discuss aspects of community supported emergency operations in the greater Sacramento area. It meets every Sunday night at 20:00 hours pacific time on the K6MVR repeater on a frequency of 147.000 MHz, with a minus offset and a CTCSS tone of 136.5 hertz.
Is there any emergency or priority traffic that needs to be handled before we begin the net?
- [pause and listen for 10 seconds for any emergency traffic that needs to be handled]
Every week we will have a discussion topic or question for net participants to respond to, about CERT related activities and skills, emergency preparedness, fictitious situations to consider or about current events within the Sacramento Valley. These topics and simulations are designed to promote thought and discussion. As a reminder, CERT teams never self deploy and should always take actual actions and direction from their overseeing agency. After roll call, we will ask each station that checked in to respond to the question and hold a discussion based on it. After roll call and discussions, we will open the net to any stations with other announcements or traffic.
Today’s question is:
First, I hope you all had a good few last Sunday's in my absence and a big thank you to Gary for filling in as net control. As always, if other people are interested in running the net I can help walk you through running one. It's a great exercise to increase your skills as a radio operator.
Most important piece of software that might help you in an emergency management situation.
Now we will begin CERT team roll calls, grouped by participating City CERT teams. We will take any late or missing members after roll call finishes. After roll call, we will call for visiting stations.
We now ask Davis City CERT members to check into the net.
We now ask Woodland CERT members to check into the net.
We will do visitor checkins in a moment, but first are there any late members of Sacramento Valley CERT teams, or CERT members that aren’t on the roster that would like to check into tonight’s net?
Handle any late checkins
We will now accept visitor checkins to the Sacramento Valley Multi-City CERT net. You do not need to be affiliated with a CERT team to check into our net. All visitors are welcome. If you're a visiting station that would like to check in, please come now with your callsign, name and location.
We will now move into the discussion portion of this net. We will first run through the roster of CERT members that have checked in and ask each station to respond to today's topic. Afterward we’ll open the discussion to all stations for additional comments.
- [Run through the roster of check-ins and record answers above]
We will do general announcements in a minute. But first we'll continue our discussion period about tonight's topic. Are there any CERT members or guests that wish to make additional comments related to tonight's discussion topic?
- [Add any additional comments to the notes above]
Are there any net participants with announcements, CERT activities, event reports or who have other traffic for the net?
- [Record general announcements below]

Hearing no more traffic or checkins, I will now close today’s Sacramento Valley Multi-city CERT net, at TIME.
The log notes for this net, including discussion comment summaries, will be available on log.hamtools.org after the net. If you wish to be on the announcement mailing list where weekly net reminders and net summary logs are sent, please contact net control after the net. Thank you for participating tonight and talk to you next week!
I would to thank the control operator and users of the K6MVR repeater for the use of this frequency. This is NAME, CALL “listening” or “signing-off”.
