Hi Bill, Another great net. We had eight checkins today with Joe, W0TBC in charge. Those who joined were;
Jim, W1QUO Reuben, W2LGF John, W8AUV Ed, N4EDT
Pertti, EA7GSU Dan, W9DJF a guest and myself WB7RQG. All of us except the guest and Reuben talked with Pertti including me.
Pertti gave me a 5/5, I gave him a 4/5. We finally connected! Finally we made contact. As soon as Andy, our secretary, gets his antenna raised we will try for The President, the Secretary and the Treasurer on the same net talking to each other.
73, Bob
