Tuesday Slow CW Net, Feb 4 2020

I called the net on schedule at 8:00PM with checkins from Chris KT9N and Rick N1RM. Great to have Rick back on after several months.

Wednesday Night 6-Meter SSB Net, 29 January 2020

I opened the net on 50.130 MHz at 2000 and closed at 2015. We had two check-ins: W2YE (Dick) and myself. The discussions tonight focused on HF antennas and experiences trying to keep them working properly. Make sure you stop by on Wednesday Nights to make sure your rigs still work on 6 meters and say “Hello!”
