Net Control Station Operator Questions
During the regular weekly 2 meter net the Net Control Station operator may ask the participants to answer a question. This is primarily to make the net a little more interesting, but sometimes the answers are quite revealing. The question is optional, and the net control operator may decide to skip it if the net is busy or appears to be running long.
The question to ask is entirely up to the net control operator's discretion. He/she may select a question from the list below or may create one of his/her own. Questions should be crafted so that the participants can give very short, simple answers.
