K2BFY thanked the 2M Net team for continuing support. Kudos to WB6EFW and KO4MBI for upgrading to General, and to KO4MBI for first participation in a net. AB3KC made a very interesting report concerning a whistling incoming object which exploded at sunset Wednesday March 3, 2021 in the Waterford vicinity. Firefighters and LCSO Deputy responded, but there was no mention in the LCSO Incident Reports. A high powered commercial firework, or . . .? K0ZR reported poor HF band conditions. We’re all hoping for better as the solar cycle progresses. The net was secured at 9 PM. 73 KI4AD
