Net Schedule, Frequencies, and Event Calendar
Here we present our regular session schedule, roles for sessions, and frequencies. Finally we include a calendar for all COTN events.
We meet on-air to handle traffic every evening at 7:15 P.M., Columbus, Ohio time.
Additionally, we meet in-person to train on the second Thursday of most months. (See schedule below to confirm.) COVID-19 Guidance: No In-Person Meeting Starting April 2020. Meetings are held by Google Meet videoconference.
Our net operates with a Net Control Station (NCS) directing activity, includes an alternate, to cover when assigned NCS is unavailable or needs assistance, a Section Net Liaison (SNL) which represents COTN / Ohio ARES District 7 to any Ohio Section or independent interstate traffic net, and a Buckeye Net Mixed (BNM) representative, able to exchange NBEMS digital traffic at the Ohio Section NTS net. (Cells with thin borders around them indicate a role on the schedule that is open; please volunteer if you're available!)
See the Standard Operating Procedures for our complete Signal Operating Instructions. For special operations, be sure to watch the Activation Notice for instructions.
