Some nets are just for fun so everybody can find out what everybody else is up to.
Some nets are for handling traffic in an old fashioned but low-technology way.
Some nets are for handling emergency traffic when it is very important that communications be maintained.
In any net, if you have priority traffic, say your call when check-ins are welcomed. If it is life and death, say your callsign suffix as soon as the current speaker unkeys followed by "Emergency Traffic". Don't be too persistant because the whole point of the net organization is organization. If interrupting a running net IS the best way to handle a truly life and death situation, then go ahead. You'll be forgiven (or celebrated) afterwords.
If you are around for check-in, but don't think you can stay for the callback later, say "in and out" after your callsign.
If you have some issue that makes it important for net control to talk to you right away, and it isn't your turn, the word is "recheck".
Some nets have special rules. Most have some rules.
Pay attention. Don't be in a hurry. Practice taking notes, even if it isn't your net to call. See if you can write down every callsign as fast as they come. That's how to get used to net operations because one day you may be the only person who can call the net. One day there may be lives depending you being able to serve as net-control.
