April - BANANA SPLIT
Exercise: Transferring control between net controls. Uses trivia questioning for the practice. (Drills, Games, and Exercises volunteers may take a break in April or May.)
Gather on air to:
- use on-air skills you may use only rarely otherwise
- get to know other VECTOR members
- get to know your gear
How it works - trivia rounds to guess quote source and situation
Each person brings a few quotes (historical, literary, movie, etc) and we take turns running a “net” to see who guesses the origin, speaker, context, etc. You pass control of the “net” around using a standard protocol.
Keep passing control to each other until you reach 2 hours or have had a chance for everyone to receive and pass control 3 times.
This is a scored game where you can have a winner.
Let’s have fun together on air Saturday, April 10, challenging each other on movie and famous quotes for a couple of hours. Catch you there at 11:00?
We’ll rotate control of the airwaves between operators. Please bring some quotes you like. Join from home.
Operator package has answers. Download it. Read it. Print what you need.
Check-in on net at 11:00 on Saturday, April 10, 2021, on VE7RVF (output 145.450 MHz, offset -600 kHz, tone 100 Hz). Finish and check out by 13:00.
