All SOUTHCARS Net Control Operators:

Please announce before starting you nets:


We presently have openings for part time , alternate net controllers that we call as needed.

If you never controlled a very busy H.F.  net before we can have you ride along with another N.C.S. until you feel comfortable  to do it yourself. For most it is a very satisfying  experience.

Please contact Fred W4FHC Net Scheduling Manager  at  919.920.4210 Or Rick ,Net General Manager at 803.449.4200 or or 803.816.2517  (e-mail

Also, if after your net secession is started and you are in a position that you can not finish, you should  ask if their are any "Official" net control stations on frequency that can  take a list or finish the net for you. It is very important that a active Official NCS operator resumes the net and not  any member (Or NON MEMBER). ONLY Official NCS are allowed to run a net. If you can not find a active Official NCS operator you should make an announcement that you are putting the net in open session until the next NCS steps in, then try calling W4FHC Fred or ND4Z,Rick. If you do not know who are active NCS operators are, you can look at the NCS Schedule or I will send you the latest list.
