Net Control Assignments

All 2-meter OCRACES ACS nets listed below start precisely at 1900 hours. On the fourth Monday, immediately following the 2-meter net, net control will run a roll-call-only net (no announcements) on one of the four 70-centimeter repeaters, followed by a roll call on the 223.760 MHz repeater, and finally by a roll call on the 52.620 MHz repeater. If there is a repeater failure, run the net on simplex, on the repeater output frequency. If you are running the net at Loma Ridge on a meeting night, arrive at your assigned net-control location by 1850 hours. Use the OCRACES ACS call sign of W6ACS if you run the net from the RACES Room. (Loma Ridge is currently restricted due to the pandemic.) If you are assigned net-control duty and you are not able to serve, it is your responsibility to find a replacement. City EOC stations are encouraged to run County ACS nets if the assigned or substitute net-control operator does not show up at net time. Any other net members (including full-time government employees) may also run the net in such a circumstance. After signing out the 2-meter ACS net, monitor for OCRACES applicants and visitors, who may have questions regarding County of Orange RACES.

Weekly net reminders are automatically sent via AlertOC text and e-mail to OCRACES members. Notifications of drills, activations, and deactivations are sent in order via various AlertOC deliveries, such as text, e-mail, mobile phone, work phone, and home phone. As soon as a member confirms receipt, subsequent deliveries are stopped. (Net reminders do not require confirmation.)
