The Ontario Amateur Radio Service Net
30th January 2019

Our objectives:
 The Ontario Amateur Radio Service Net operates everyday on a frequency of 3.755 MHz  lower side band.
The purpose of ONTARS is to provide signal reports, pass traffic and take routine checkins from amateur radio operators in Canada.
Thanks to the generosity of the various control operators and net managers, ONTARS has been in operation
for the last 47 years. Your checkins keep the ONTARS net active and secure our position on the frequency spectrum.
All Canadian and US amateurs are welcome to check in to our net.

 Knowing that  ONTARS is on the air, and that a very friendly and welcoming controller is "ON AIR" to affirm that
the amateur's rig and antenna still work, can be just as important.

Check-in Procedure:
 Please give your callsign with phonetics in an orderly fashion.
Controllers will usually take a list of full call signs, then return to speak briefly for traffic/message opportunities.
When you are called in, please come back with your name and location for the controller's log.

If you hear a station that you wish to contact, during checkins, please break in using the word "CONTACT" with your call sign.
This procedure will stop net activities and you should identify fully with your callsign and then call the desired station.
Emergency/mobile traffic takes priority over everything and all stations should standbye until those transmissions are cleared.

Feel free to provide weather reports, request signal reports or technical assistance on equipment or antenna issues.
Most controllers are able to copy CW, so if you are having trouble checking in on SSB, then use that mode.
