Thursday 10 meter net Report 18 Jun 2020

Hi there. We had a nice net on 10 meters tonight. The band was open beyond the northern Virginia area. We were able to meet at 28.405 Mhz and have a very informal net. There was no NCS so we did a normal QSO until we all had to leave. Those checking in were:

  1. W5ODJ, John
  2. KE4S, Dave
  3. W4PMP, Chris
  4. W0MPM, John

A reminder that we have a club meeting (virtual) this coming Saturday.

Everyone had a decent signal. It was great to hear everyone.
