10. NUMBER OF MESSAGES ORIGINATED:  0
11. PROBLEMS OR ISSUES ENCOUNTERED OR OBSERVED: 
A.      FIRST CALLUP WAS A BIT CONFUSING DUE TO THE NUMBER OF STATIONS THAT   
CALLED IN. 
B.      AAR3RBA SPENT TOO MUCH TIME SWITCHING FREQUENCIES TO COLLECT WL2K MAIL 
AND WAS NOT ALWAYS AVAILABLE ON PRIMARY NET FREQUENCY.
C.      SOME STATIONS WERE USING DIGITAL MODES BUT TRANSMITTERS WERE OVER 
DRIVEN.  SOME OF THESE STATIONS DO NOT REGULARLY APPEAR ON OUR DIGITAL NETS. 
SUSPECT THEY WERE NOT COMFORTABLE SETTING UP FOR DIGITAL MODES.
12. WHAT WORKED WELL: 
A.      3 /TANGO STATIONS PARTICIPATED 1 SENT MESSAGE VIA OLIVIA AND ONE SENT 
HIS TRAFFIC VIA VOICE. BOTH COMPETENTLY DONE TRANSMITTED.

5. BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF OPERATION: 1701Z TO 1759Z ON 10 NOV 2009 PARTICIPATED 
IN AAR3RD/X
NET. SENT 1 EEI REPORT.
6. HOW AND WHEN NOTIFIED OF EMERGENCY: RECEIVED ALERT NOTIFICATION MESSAGE FROM 
AAM3RD
081800Z AND PHONE CALL FROM AAA3MD 091830Z 
7. WEATHER DURING OPERATION: 28 DEG OVERCAST NO WIND

9. NUMBER OF MESSAGES PROCESSED: 1
10. NUMBER OF MESSAGES ORIGINATED:  1
11. PROBLEMS OR ISSUES ENCOUNTERED OR OBSERVED:22 STATIONS CALLED ON FIRST 
CALLUP. 
NCS SHOULD HAVE MADE LIMITED CALLUP FOR STATIONS WITH TRAFFIC ONLY.  AAR3RBA 
WAS IN INITIAL
CALLUP BUT DID NOT ANSWER FOR TRAFFIC IN FIRST 20 MINUTES OF NET CAUSING 
MESSAGES TO BE
SENT TO RELAY. TOO MANY RGN 3 STATIONS DO NOT WANT TO BE NCS, THIS MUST BE 
ADDRESSED AND
ONE WAY WOULD BE TO "ENFORCE" THE CAM RULE FOR NCS PARTICIPATION DAILY NETS.
12. WHAT WORKED WELL: 3 /TANGO STATIONS PARTICIPATED 1 SENT MESSAGE VIA OLIVIA 
AND ONE WHO
WAS /TANGO 5 WEEKS AGO SENT MESSAGE VIA OLIVIA.  HAVING A CUSTOMER ON FREQUENCY 
RECEIVING
MESSAGES WAS FIRST FOR ME IN EXERCISE NETS AND IT WAS A VERY GOOD THING. 
OPERATOR HAD ONE
HOUR OF TRAINING WITH MIXW AND EASYPAL AND WAS TRAINED TO SAVE ALL MESSAGES TO 
HARD DRIVE
BEFORE ACKNOWLEDING RECEIPT CAUSED SOME DELAY, BUT WILL ON GET BETTER BASED ON 
TODAY.
