UNID 6977 USB ~2240 08dec 2019 UTC
« on: December 09, 2019, 0109 UTC »
ABOUT 2240 - A net with call signs of CWnnn. NCS seemed to be
                              CW321 who sometimes asked for relays from other
                              stations. Additional calls: CW705 and others. NCS
                              would ask for check-ins by hundreds groups - "Are
                               there any 400 stations wishing to check in", "Any
                               500 stations...", etc. All seemed to be native English
                               speakers.

This is Canadian Forces Affiliate Radio System (CFARS), the Canadian equivalent of the US Military Affiliate Radio System (MARS).  Sometimes you can hear both CFARS and MARS stations in the net.

Thanks, refmo. My first thought was MARS but the
calls weren't right.
