It was a superbly directed, fun, and well attended net tonight. K2BFY submitted proof that the “Earth is Flat” proponents are wrong. If correct, cats would have knocked everything off the edge. Proper location for additional grounding rods was discussed. We have possible volunteers to re-institute the LARG balloon flights, which will be discussed with management. One ham was operating from his basement without outside antenna, which was a good idea considering the lightning storms passing through. The net was secured at 9:09 PM local.
