Listening to the local Skywarn repeater, one thing is striking me.
When you check into any kind of emergency net, whether it be Skywarn or anything else ..... don't get chatty. Make your report or make your communications. Net Control does not need your life story.
Get in, say what you have to, and then make way for other reports.
I cannot believe some of the inane chit chat that I am hearing.
