Good evening: I've been listening to 2M as a new ham and finding the local nets in my area. I mostly just listen unless I have something to add; seems better to not tie up the net just to announce my call sign. However, I was wondering if it's better to check in just so show interest and passively show support. Can any experienced net operators give insight into the other side? Do net operators write down and keep logs of who signs into their nets?
