    SDFARC Weekly Net Script
    Hello and Welcome!
    This is the SDF Amateur Radio Club weekly net.  That's Sierra Delta
    Foxtrot, the Super Dimension Fortress.  If you are not familiar with
    SDF, it's a Public Access Unix System.  You can learn more by
    directing your web browser to s-d-f dot o-r-g.  I will pause now to
    allow you to disconnect, if you do not want to stay for the net.
    (pause ~10 seconds)
    I am (CALL), the Net Control Operator today; my name is (NAME), and I
    am in (QTH).  My SDF username is (USER).
    This net meets every Monday at Zero hour Zulu via Echolink Node 9229,
    the TECHLINK Conference.  I would like to thank Reg VK6BQQ for
    allowing us to use this conference.
    This is a directed net.  That means that if you have something to say,
    give your call, and wait for the NC to acknowledge you and give you
    the floor.
    Because we are meeting in an Echolink Conference, I can make a note of
    the connected stations.  Then I will call for additional checkins from
    stations that do not appear on the connected list.  After that, I will
    go down the list, and everyone will have a chance to greet and make a
    comment or ask a question.
    (acknowledge stations on the Echolink connected list)
    Any other stations, please call now.
    (take more checkins)
    OK, let's go back now and hear from everybody.
    (call roll and take comments)
    	Do we have any new checkins or additional comments?
    	(repeat as necessary, until no more...)
    This concludes this week's SDF Amateur Radio Club NET at NNNN hours
    Zulu.  This is net control station (CALL), out.
