Help Wanted- HF Radio Operators

At this time the Ontario Phone Net is looking for the following:

Back up Net Control Stations– Occasionally one of the regular NCS needs a few days off…This position needs a person who has a basic knowledge of the NTS in the Ontario Section, a good knowledge of of the duties of a Net Control Station.  Having access to a HF station capable of operating on the 80m band is a necessity.  If you are interested please contact the Net Manager.  If you need more basic information on how the net runs please feel free to drop in for a visit any night of the week at 1900 Eastern (Standard or Daylight) time on or about a frequency of 3.742

Net Liason Stations- The OPN is in need of stations from Northern Ontario, North Western Ontario North Eastern Ontario and Eastern Ontario to check into the net on a regular basis to see if there is any formal traffic for their respective locations.  If you are interested please contact the Net Manager.  If you need more basic information on how the net runs please feel free to drop in for a visit any night of the week at 1900 Eastern (Standard or Daylight) time on or about a frequency of 3.742

    I’m newly licensed (VE3GBK) and I’ve been trying to understand what a “phone net” is. I understand “net”, but how is a phone involved? I assume this means telephone? Please explain.

    Hi Glenn,
    First of all “Welcome to the Hobby” and thanks for visiting our blog…

    The easiest answer to your question would be to say that the term “Phone Net” would be another way of saying “Voice Net”

    If you listen to some of the older very established nets and their controllers you might hear the NCS saying ” I am standing by for any check ins…. Phone or CW…”

    So in reality the Ontario Phone Net is a net that handles voice traffic but we will take CW Checkins and handle CW Traffic as most (if not all) of the NCS Stations are capable of operating in that mode if the need arises.

    Feel free to check in with us on 3.742 any time and get the feel of how we operate… You never know as one night we might have traffic for “The Island” and your assistance would be appreciated…
