ANCS_Report message template

I made a template file that I think might work for use during a net for an Assistant Net Control Station on a secondary frequency to report check-ins to the Net Control Station on the primary frequency when the nets recombine after initial check-ins are completed. It's a work-in-progress so please feel free to test and report issues, enhancements, etc. I'd like to keep the transmission time as short as possible (within reason) because it's intended for use during what is primarily a voice net. In my limited testing, this form with 10 check-ins, takes about 40 seconds to send (using MT63-2KL mode). Once we get the hang of using it, this should take about the same time as reporting counts and relaying a couple of callsigns that checked in with traffic for the net. Plus, I like the idea of getting to practice using a digital mode every week. Since ANCS is likely already a training position on most nets, perhaps we could have a "digital scribe" that could do the reporting.

Save this file to the NBEMS.files\ICS\templates folder used by Flmsg on your system.
