Traders Net Preamble


Good Morning, this is the South-Cars' Trader’s Net. This net meets every Wednesday morning at 10 AM to 11 AM for the purpose of trading, selling or buying amateur related equipment and accessories. This net follows the guidelines and procedures set forth by South-Cars and FCC Part 97, paragraph [97.113 (a)(3)], regarding having no pecuniary interest. This states in part: "Amateur operators may, however, notify other amateur operators of the availability for sale or trade of apparatus' normally used in an amateur station, provided that such activity is not conducted on a regular basis." This applies to the individual operators and not the service provided by this net; the net has no pecuniary interest.

Please realize, this is not a social net like our normal South-Cars sessions; therefore your cooperation will be appreciated. However, if we do not have a sufficient number of check-ins listing their wants or items for sale, we will read the listings that are posted in our new SCARS Trading Post on our web site and we will provide information on upcoming ham-fest and events.

All stations, are more than welcome to submit your needs, wants, or items to be sold via e-mail to ND4Z@YAHOO.COM prior to the net. These e-mail submissions will be included either during the current net or at the earliest traders' net session. Individuals checking into the Traders Net over the air, must be a general class operator or higher.

Listings are restricted to no more than 4 items per week. We request that each listing be kept to a minimum; to include only the brand name, model number, (what it is, i.e. transceiver, receiver, amp., etc.), condition (cosmetics and operational; rated on a scale of 1 to 10), price, and contact information. Please, no history or sales pitch, that can be discussed with the individuals when they contact you. It is imperative, we keep the listings brief.

Your Net Control for this session is _______ I’m located in ______ and we will now start with those on frequency with items of need or sale.
