If you  Can Not Complete Your Session :  

If after your net session has started and you are in a position that you can not finish, you should ask if there is any Officical Net Control Stations on frequency that can take a list or finish the net for you. It is very important that an 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 an active Official NCS operator you should make an announcement that you are putting the net in an open session until the next NCS steps in. Then try calling W4FHC Fred or ND4Z Rick. If you do not know who are the active NCS operators are, you can look at the NCS schedule or I will send you the latest list.
