Discussed bringing the WiresX AmericaLink UHF repeater back up with Paulson. Mike passed on that the Dayton Hamvention had been cancelled. Depressing to think that the Covid-19 debacle will last until mid May. Joe covered the role of the Loudoun Medical Reserve Corps in the Covid-19 war, and that there are now two strains, SARS-CoV-2 S which is the original zoogenic virus, and SARS-CoV-2 M, which has evolved to better match the human genome, and is thus more dangerous to us. Darwin wins. Emergency Response Teams are preparing for a 5 month activation. More up to date scientific information will be provided on the DMT Net, 145.31 77 Hz this Tuesday at 7 PM.

We had three check-ins tonight: Jeff KoZR, Chris KT9N, and Dave KE4S. After a brief chat, we closed at 2015L, and as I was closing, I received a call from KE4I Dennis, in GA. Very confusing for a minute, because the I is only one dit short of my own call!. Turns out he is working on a certificate for the CWOPS 10th Anniversary event running this month, and I was happy to help him work toward 25 CWOps members.
Please join us levery Tuesday evening at 8PM EST for some slow CW practice. 73 de Dave KE4S
I started the 6-meter net tonight on 50.130 MHz a little after 8pm tonight. There were two people other than me who checked in: KN4BGW (Steve) and K9CQB (Damon).
It was nice to hear some familiar voices on 6 meters as it’s been a very long time since I’ve been home on a Wednesday evening where I could be around the radios locally.
Our next net is tomorrow evening at 8pm. Hope to see you on the air!
