Moving

FAQ #190
Difference between a fish and a transceiver? You can tune a transceiver, but you can't tuna fish. It's time for the net but there's a QSO on net frequency. What might a good net control do? Move. When the net control operator finds it necessary to shift the net frequency, everyone moves with the NCS.

That means you re-zerobeat or tune in both your receiver and transmitter. No, just adjusting your RIT doesn't do it. You'll still be transmitting on the “old” net frequency. In fact, you may be well out of the passband of the NCS's receiver, so you won't be heard. Even if he or she hears you, you'll still be creating interference for the stations on what was the net frequency.

So when you move with the net, please move both your receiver AND your transmitter VFO. And that's the name of that, er, tune.

And when you find a net during Field Day, don't forget your extra points for sending a proper message to your SM (KA1RB) or SEC (N9MEA). The text will include the name of your group, your location, the number of participants, and the number of ARES/RACES members probably in that order. Your message only has to get into the system during the FD period. If you're checked into any net, please help a FD station out by taking their traffic for relay. Good Luck. 73 – K9LGU/STM-WI
