First off, we want to welcome N1OTC back to the Net’s. Jack Boles underwent Heart surgery in December which was very successful. Jack is now back up and running again on the phone and CW Nets. It is good news.
We also want to welcome KC1ML Mark Loring to the Traffic Nets. Mark has been on the local VHF Nets and just recently joined the CW Nets under the tutelage of Marcia KW1U and Jack N1OTC.
We also welcome Marino Coppoleti N1PVP into the Traffic ranks. Marino will be working the CW Nets and will certainly be a welcomed there to fill a big need.
Also rejoining the Traffic Nets will be NG1A, Fred Butts a seasoned Traffic handler who
took some time off to visit Germany and move into a new house. Good to have Freddy
back. Freddy is also a member of the CW Nets and VHF Nets.
We all are aware of the problems with the Boston Repeater. The window washing equipment blocking our antenna. Since this has happened all the far out stations have not been able to get into the repeater, myself included. I have suggested to Jack N1TPU to move the net to the Waltham repeater until further notice. The Waltham repeater is having some problems too, but I think it will be better than Boston for the time being. Let us hope the winter passes quickly and things will get back to normal.
