From time to time we will run the Tuesday night net in SIMPLEX. This means that we turn off the WY8DOT repeater and run the net in a simulated disaster condition. Periodic exercises like this are an important way keep our skills as operators sharp and practice for the unexpected. This guide should give you a quick reference to the simplex net as well as some pointers on how to configure your radio to quickly switch over to simplex mode.
When doing a simplex net the NCO will not call the role as usual. Under a simplex net the NCO will ask for stations to check in based on the first letter of the suffix of their call sign.
