Pop-Up Net Control Practice

Pop-up Net Control is a great way to gain and practice Net Control skills. The concept is simple.  Participation is quick and easy.  Here's how it works:

  • Travel to the pop-up net control location
  • Send/receive a few messages under the guidance of experienced NCOs
  • Be home for lunch
  • Easy peazy


  • Most information is located on the Pop-Up Net Control Practice web page
  • Note that each position has prerequisites.  So check the above page before signing up.
  • Information specific to this event is located below.


  • Parking lot across the street from the Sheriff's Office building
  • We will set up pop-up tents and/or use the shade under the solar panels
  • We will spread out to provide sufficient "social distance" to help avoid spread of the coronavirus (or the flu!).


  • You will see pop-up tents in the parking lot across the street from the Sheriff's Office
  • Park nearby.  But leave at least one space between your car and a tent.  No permit is required on the weekend.
  • Do NOT park next to the Sheriff's Office Building.


  • There will be one tent where check-in/out will be performed.  Please go there first, so you don't disturb existing practice sessions.

Weather or Other Last Minute Changes:

  • It's possible we might have to cancel due to weather or other issues
  • Expect an email at approximately 8pm the night before (Friday, 3/20) with a go/no-go decision.
  • We'll also update this page at that time.

The following positions are available for this event. You can state your preference when you sign up for the event. The event coordinator will attempt to accommodate your request. Based on the event and its requirements, the event coordinator may move hams to positions other than those requested.
