National System usage guide.
Please make sure minimum of 3 second gaps between overs .At busy times 5 seconds is recommended.
Key up delay from the Far North to the Far South is several mS so the gaps are very important so others can access if required . Please limit conversation to a max of 20 mins and if possible move to simplex or a local repeater . A conversation on your local national system repeater activates the whole system nation wide .
The Kordia National System award is active . Please assist in giving out points for this .
