    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 or s-d-f-a-r-c dot
    o-r-g. I will pause now to allow for any emergency or priority
    [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 Michael, VE7KI, 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.  Our net is open to all radio amateurs and is not
    restricted to members of the SDF Amateur Radio Club.
    We like to have a question of the week to kickstart our discussions.
    This week's question is: [question]
    I will take several rounds of checkins.  I will then go down the list
    and everyone will have a chance to greet and make a comment or ask a
    If you would like to check in, please come with your callsign, name,
    location, and your SDF username (if you have one).
    [call for 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.  If you would like to continue the conversation, please join our
    afternet in the SDF DMR talkgroup (number 31650) or join us in com on
