Digital and 2m net reports Sunday June 06, 2021

There were 3 participants of the digital net tonight:

  1. K3WD, Bill
  2. KG4TIH, Paulson
  3. W5ODJ, John

We had a nice long digital chat on various topics including what was being planned for Field Day 2021. Paulson is working on a remote 2D station to contribute to FD this year. Also talked about birds and bees, neighbors, long walks, grounding rods that don’t want to go into the ground (surprise) and many other things.

The 2 meter net was attended by 9 folks tonight. Lots of new hams using their license to share some time with all fo us. Those included:

  1. KO4NMN, Kevin
  2. KO4OCN, Mike
  3. K3WD, Bill
  4. KO4QVQ, Rick
  5. KI4AD, Evan
  6. AB3KC, Collins
  7. KD4HAX, Joe
  8. KF4UUX, Earl
  9. W5ODJ, John

As with the digital net we covered a range of topics from learning CW for Field Day 2021 to politics. It was good to hear all the new hams on tonight. I wish we didn’t have to mess with COVID and could have a Field Day like the good ole days. Hopefully this will sort out this year and we can get back to normal.

Everyone have a great week. See you on one of the nets coming up.
