A net is a gathering of ham radio operators.
There is a 'net controller' who is in charge of the 'traffic' on the net.
Net control usually refers to the net's preamble, to 'call' the net.
After the opening statements, net control asks for 'check ins' often by area.
The participating ham operators state their callsign, are acknowledged by net control, and perhaps say a little about themselves, activities, announcements etc.
