Tonight's District nets at 1930 hours are using the W6TRW 2-meter repeater cross-linked with the 440 Rolling Hills repeater, the 2-meter TAC-3 simplex frequency, our 220 simplex frequency (voice net followed by an NBEMS digital message); the 440 K6CPT-4a repeater; and concluding with another NBEMS message on 2-meter TAC-3 simplex. DCS members and those of the South Bay's city-affiliated disaster amateur radio groups are encouraged to check in on one or more frequencies. Please relay for members you hear calling on simplex who are not heard by net control. During the NBEMS segments members are encouraged to send one of their own messages to the net.

During our March 22 and April 5 Monday night nets we started a gradual return to operating from the Lomita Sheriff Station DCS room. All our installed equipment there was tested and still works after a year of inactivity. But until further notice only one DCS member at a time should be in our radio room due to close distances between the three adjacent operating positions. We are sanitizing all touchable surfaces before each net and still observing face-covering protocols.

Please volunteer to help operate our weekly Districts nets from your home. We expect handling Monday night nets from home stations well into 2021 and have scripts that make net operation easier. Our combined coverage from W6TRW 2m and/or K6RH 440 repeaters enables many without good simplex coverage to handle our main net. Contact me at [email protected] with any Monday when you can help.
