AFTER ACTION REPORT – from VHF SIMPLEX Net Control Station (NCS) KB1WFK:
12 VHF SIMPLEX check ins, 9 HF check ins, 2 Repeater check ins.
Was able to add HF/VHF relay stations to the mix.
NCS did inform the net what was going on with HF and repeater check ins.
Instead of using matrix tried a different format to show who can hear who
Recorded some Readability and some Strength values, it appears R (can you hear them) are more important on a cheat sheet.
Got a bit confusing as simplex VHF net control trying to listen to 3 radios.
Paper got a bit messy, need to organize differently for 3 nets and relays.
Some got call signs wrong including NCS getting Bill KB1YJ wrong a couple times.
NCS did not periodically run through who had checked into the net.
Periodically doing this would have helped keep all call signs correct.
NCS failed to check with N1AFF to find out who he could hear.
NCS didn’t realize that several other stations had heard N1AFF
NCS late recognizing KC1MIU at 12m 57s, which lead to KC1AWV eventually going mobile to check in.
KB1YSB suggested HF checkins be taken at a different time than VHF checkins
Periodically run through who has checked into the net
