We can always use net controllers, which means that you can try your hand at running a LEARA net! Give it a try, it's not that hard. Learn the voices and call signs of your fellow radio members. We presently have 7 active net controllers to bring you the net each week. Why not join up and give us a hand. You can even do a part time shift - say 4 times a year! Give it a try!
