Iron Range Net Check-ins

Link to Net’s Facebook Group Page

The Iron Range Net maintains a log of all those stations checking into the net, keeping a running total of the number of check-ins for each station. George, KR6FB, maintains the log and awards the certificates. Due to the cost of printing and  postage ($4.00 to send a mountable certificate by USPS) , if your email is not listed on QRZ – please provide George with your email address so that a printable electronic version of the certificate can be sent to you.

With some of our regular net participants approaching the 700 mark, it is time to begin thinking of a design for the 700th Certificate of Participation. A lot has happened in the intervening 14 years – so it is appropriate to remember the founders. Hence, the Founder’s Edition has been suggested as a design theme. 

Draft Certificate Design

Suggestions for design modifications are encouraged. Ideas should be submitted by June 2022 – about the time the first such certificate can be awarded.

Net Preamble

Net control operators are welcome to utilize the suggested preamble to call the net.

  1. I am a snowbird from Eveleth (WE6J) listening from Palmetto Florida – just south of Tampa – on an SDR site in Cleveland Ohio. Now I can enjoy it here as well as back home. 73

  2. I was surprised that my check in number was only 16. I have been checking in for at least two years both on the actual radio and via remote. In the two years, I might have missed two or three Saturdays.

    1. Congratulations, the Certificate is in the mail. Thank you for being a regular participant in our net. You are now working on your 300 th check-in!

    1. Thanks, George for making quick work of the revisions in the log as we put the finishing touches on it after its roll out this Saturday. As we progress any needed additions or changes can be brought to George and my attention by just leaving a comment. The comments of an administrative nature will be acted upon and those of interest to the Net members will be posted for others to read and respond to if appropriate.

  3. Great job George!!! I wasn’t sure what you were going to come up with and I can’t see how it could be any better than this.
    I appreciate you hard work in ham radio.
