MASS TRAFFIC REPORT FOR AUGUST 2015

Greetings all.  August was a busy month.  August 2 the weather was perfect for a traffic handlers picnic held in Concord.  It was good to see some familiar faces and to meet new folks.  Hamburgers, hot dogs and corn-on-the-cob was enjoyed by all.  Thanks to those who brought all the little “extras”.  If you missed it we hope you can attend next summer.

In mid August we enjoyed the ARRL New England Division Convention at Boxboro, where we were invited to have a booth dedicated to NTS.  Several of our traffic handlers helped to man the booth and make information available about NTS and local traffic nets to those who stopped by.  Thanks to those who helped out.  This convention will again take place at Boxboro next August, and if you missed this year, hopefully you can make it next year.

Traffic was down in August.  The KW1U MBO underwent a change in software and was also plagued with equipment failure.  It is back up now and we are beginning to see more traffic this month.  We have had some new folks chedking into the nets and this is always good to see.  Below is the traffic report for both East and West Mass for August.  Thanks to all who participated.  73, Marcia KW1U
