Training Net - Message Passing Practice

Date: 05/16/23 Start: 8:30 PM End: 9:15 PM Location: Zoom
Credential Credit (What's this?): No

This is the monthly Training Net held on the third Tuesday of each month.

This month's Training Net will be held on Zoom. The Zoom meeting URL will be sent to everyone who has signed up as a participant or a listener the day before the practice.

This practice will involve participants sending 3rd party messages in pieces. The first sender will voice the first 5 words (or fewer than 5 words where appropriate), then the second sender will voice the next five, the third sender will send the next five, and so on. Immediate feedback will be given on the proper use of procedures and prowords. Participants will be called on in a rotation basis, so everyone should have several opportunities to practice. To minimize any stage fright, the participants will be anonymous, identified only by number. The messages will be published in advance of the training net and will progress from easy to more difficult for each message sent. We will practice with two to four messages, as time allows. 

Expected Difficulty: Easy to Difficult

The Message Passing class is a recommended prerequisite to signing up as a participant, but it is not required if you have sufficient experience and understanding of SCCo message passing procedures, techniques and prowords. Anyone not yet comfortable signing up as a participant is encouraged to register as a listener. Listeners will not be called upon, but will have the opportunity to ask questions.

Anyone wishing to receive pre-event communications (plans for the net, advance look at messages to be used, etc.) should sign up. The Zoom link for the practice will be sent to those who have signed up. Everyone is encouraged to have blank message forms to copy the messages being sent for practice. If you have all the recommended go-kit forms, you will be covered.

The following positions are available for this event. You can state your preference when you sign up for the event. The event coordinator will attempt to accommodate your request. Based on the event and its requirements, the event coordinator may move hams to positions other than those requested.
