2-Meter Net Report October 2016

Our 2 meter net meeting EVERY Wednesday at 8:00 PM (local time) on the clubs repeater system network. These are good training ground for possible emergency situations, as well as helping the new hams in the area to have an easy way to get use to “talking on the radio”.

If you have an interest in joining the Net Control stations please call me (432/837-2257) or holler at me during the Wednesday evening net (either before or after the net).

The month of October had four (4) Wednesdays in it and it went this way:

OCTOBER 5     19    W5RHN fill-in for N5BBJ
OCTOBER 12    19    W5RHN
OCTOBER 19    11    KF5KMA
OCTOBER 26    18    KA5PVB
67 total check-ins for October

With fall season here now, everyone is busy, and if you don’t have the time to check-in to the net and stick around for the round-table discussion, take a minute of your time and check-in as an “in-and-out” (where you’re there for the head count but don’t have the time to participate). All participation is much appreciated and encouraged.

About 2 weeks from now (mid-November) I plan to work up the Net Control Schedule for the first half of 2017. If any newly licensed members, OR IN-ACTIVE PREVIOUS NET CONTROL STATIONS would like to rejoin the group of NCS, let me know and I’ll be happy to add you to our new schedule!

Any of the new hams in the community, if you have questions or problems with trying to get radios and antennas set-up feel free to bring them up during the net. We May not have the answer right of the cuff, but somebody can find the info and get back with you shortly!

73’s and hope to talk to you soon.

Happy holiday season (yes, it’s almost here)!
