Greetings all traffic handlers in East and West Mass. Below find the July and August traffic reports for both Massachusetts sections. Thanks to all of you for your support of the nets and handling of NTS messages. We have greatly missed the services of Byron K1YCQ who became a silent key. Thanks to those who have stepped up to help fill his shoes. We sure could use some more help however. The EM2MN net currently has only three net control stations, N1SYC, N1LUM and KW1U. This is the place to get some training and experience so that should an emergency situation arise you will be prepared to step up and assume control of a net. Speak to N1SYC if you would like to give it a try on the EM2MN or N1LUM for the HHTN.
We are also about to lose the services of Dave KB1WOD who is moving to Vermont. Dave has handled a lot of messages for the north shore as well as other areas, and he will be sorely missed. We thank Dave for all his support and we wish him well at his new QTH. Maybe we will hear him on HF? Hope you won’t forget us Dave.
I will be adding some more traffic tips which you will find on the menu on the left. The next one will be on handling instructions which should be up in the next few days. These HX instructions are put there by the originators for a reason and as delivering or relay stations we are obliged to observe them. The most common one we see is the HXC which requests a message back to the originator about date and time of delivery. I will have more on this in the traffic tips.
I hope everyone had a good summer and is getting antennas etc ready for winter. See you on the traffic nets.
73, Marcia KW1U
