SET Schedule

COTN will hold its regular and ten special sessions on Saturday, October 1, 2016, as well as eight special sessions and one regular session on Sunday, October 2, 2016. All times are local (Eastern). Each net will have a designated Net Control Station (NCS), Section Net Liaison (SNL), and will take place on a designated frequency (always start with primary, then move to secondary, then tertiary, then simplex), with any particular focus for the session (for example, simplex operation), noted.

Note that we will run the SET through the entire month of October, passing traffic with participating European stations. While we will return to normal schedule on Monday, October 3, net control stations will still need to send their detailed SET session reports.

SET Check-In Procedure

When checking into COTN during the SET, do so by announcing yourself as follows:
  1. Callsign (in standard phonetics)
  2. Add "/E" (pronounced "stroke echo") to your callsign if you are on emergency power, e.g., a battery or generator
  3. Add "/D" (pronounced "stroke delta") to your callsign if you are capable of digital message exchange on the present session, e.g., Fldigi -- not to be confused with "digital liaison," which is NTSD
  4. Announce "new ham" if you got your license in 2012 or after
