Ah you are inventing problems.  The "real NC" would quickly assert 
their position.  There are lots of nets held on ham radio...how often 
do others claim to be net control...virtually never.  If you are 
saying someone will cause malicious interference, there is no cure 
other than peer pressure and official FCC action.

The way to introduce Net Controlled passes is to do it in advance of 
FD.  In fact the idea might catch on when folks find it manages the 
typical "FM chaos" that reigns currently.

I propose there be a Net Day every month on certain FM satellites 
starting with AO-51, if it is healthy enough. Good practise for a 
real "emergency comm" situation.  There are ARES Nets held regularly 
all over the nation on VHF/UHF... why not on satellite?
