During your period of participation in the net, you are asked to record the signal strength for each transmission made by other members in the net even if not audible. 
  • Transmit only your call and location (e.g. G3NAQ IO91HL), using phonetics for the letters, 
  • and then a carrier or SSB tone for 15 - 20 seconds. 
This allows an accurate signal strength assessment, remembering that it may be necessary to adjust the RIT for maximum reading. 

The net controller will then leave several seconds for a measurement of the background noise.

None of this prevents normal discourse either. You may want to say how things are going.
