It is October already and the leaves are turning bright colors. Temperatures are beginning to fall and we are seeing changes in propagation, generally for the better, at least we hope that trend continues. September saw the return of Bob N1SYC to his radio and we are very happy to hear him again and hear of his recovery. Welcome back Bob.
October 6 saw the re-activation of the Mass Rhode Island Phone Net under the managership of Ralph N1LAH. This net is meeting Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 6 PM on 3978 +/- qrm. As mentioned previously NTS traffic will be handled at the beginning of the net after which time will be given to round table conversation. We hope to attract folks from all of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, a good opportunity to get to know hams from outside your local area.
Also note the September 2015 issue of QNI Newsletter is available on the web. Check out k6jt.com and scroll down to the QNI Archives. Jim Wades WB8SIW puts together a very interesting quarterly newsletter with many articles on NTS.
The September traffic report for East and West Mass is below. Thanks to all for your support of the nets.
