This is Southcars, the South Coast Amateur Radio Service. This net is conducted under the guidelines of the Southcars organization, and further follows the rules outlined in FCC Part 97 and good amateur practice.
This SouthCARS server is supplied by the “The Great Lakes Reflector System (provided by KB8ZGL)” and all contacts, and requests for information will be handled through the Net Control.
