COMPLETE NET OPENING PROCEDURES AND ERF Continued
After transmitting ERF, members will confirm their reception and storage of ERF (sent to them in step h; display will
change as shown, beep will be heard).
Tell members to set CHAN to channel where ERF was stored (channel number sent in step h), and stand by.
Set CHAN to channel where ERF was stored (channel number given in step g)
Confirm communication with each net member on hopset channel.
Repeat g thru I for additional hopset(s).
Tell members to set FCTN to SQ ON (or normal operating position).
If a member was 'lost" during ERF, do the following:
Tell other members to stand by (have alternate NCS control net operation while you are out of
communication); then set CHAN to MAN and repeat steps g thru I.
If contact was not made in step 1, set CHAN to channel where you last had communication with the lost
member (net members are instructed to monitor the MAN channel and wait for NCS to find them).
