Net control will call for any emergency traffic and then give out any relevant warnings for our coastline. Then typically they will make a “general call” for any maritime traffic to call in.


Vessels should be prepared with their position report, wind conditions, bearing and speed over ground.  State your intentions and/or destination if you are not known to the net.
