Then there is the one who drones on and on for 20 minutes or more and then says' "Well 73's , I have to go"  After boring the hell out of everyone else, signs off without doing the others the courtesy
of listening to their replies.  His time is more important than everyone else in the qso.

Has anyone ever heard a throat-mic?

Deep Throat did!

I used to run The Boring Net. People left, it was too boring.

The The Missed Directed Net for hams who needed direction.

And the last net I ran was The Dead Net. I used to call up recently departed hams who went to the dark side. That net didn't last too long? No one ever came back to me on the call up???

These are all really interesing. Wind chimes are relaxing, and the sound of dishes being done means it's not my turn to do them  Grin

Carbon Mike Tone Deaf Net. I like that one! May as well use a carbon button telephone handset, good comms quality. Where's that box of nasty old microphones when it's wanted?

The Dead Net - Too creepy for me. Evil spirits might answer. Seance, ouija, divination, are forbiden here.
It could be a 'polite' way to hold the frequency for a little while and surely there are some people who might be interested enough in that sort of activity to pursue a ham license to try it.

The Kerchunker Net? Start off your turn and your transmitter with a contactor and/or a motor-generator set, etc. Obliged when leaving the net to sign-off by having some sort of burnout. Still inspired by Don on the loud contactor idea. IIRC he had a contactor mounted on a piece of wood and it was very audible.

The Cappella Net:    (music with voice only - without instrumental accompaniment)

Everyone takes a turn and sings their best renditions of their favorite songs.

With COVID-19 causing many (including my girlfriend) to cast a suspicious eye at microphones at karaoke singings, this sounds FB.  Luckily I try to keep in practice by singing in the car and shower.  Grin
 
don't forget the good ole stand by; aches, pains and ailments net.  Though they are a dime a dozen on 75m on any given late night.

With everything that ails me getting worse now, I'd fit right in. Tongue
 
My recommendation, a CW net using AM voice only. You need to mouth out the "Bah, bi-bi bah's."

"Ba-Ba-Baah, Ba-Ba-Bra-Ann?" (My late sister, named Barbara Ann, *hated* that song.)

I think we should have an Up-Against-the-Wall-Mother-Truckers net: it'll include classic Jefferson Airplane tunes like "Crown of Creation," "Volunteers," "Good Shepherd," and (of course) "White Rabbit!"

Up here in the Northeast, Jim, WA1UQM has one of the loudest, most authoritative contractor clunks on transmit ever heard.  I think he has something like a NEMA Size 3 3 phase contactor that doesnít really do anything but make noise miked up the way the Red Sox Radio Network has the Green Monster at Fenway miked up for the Wall Balls.  In fact Jimís ker-chunk  sounds very much like a Wall Ball.  Maybe itís really just a sound bite he recorded off of WTIC Hartford!
