Those assigned to a particular month will also be expected to check into the SONOMA Op Area net at 1900 hours on 146.73 to represent Sonoma Valley and to give the check-ins from the week before.  Be prepared to act as NCS on this net if Sonoma Valley is next in rotation. Bring any announcements back from that net to our local net at 1930 hours.

On the first Monday of Feb, May, Aug and Nov the net should be run from the EOC to test the radios.
