I hope all are having a good summer, keeping cool and hydrated. A lot has been going on within NTS over the summer. Here in Massachusetts traffic handlers have been busy keeping the traffic flowing. We’ve had some newbies to message handling which is always a welcome sight. New folks are starting to learn and actually handle messages on the nets and through the packet system as well. Training is available and we welcome and encourage more to get involved. See Marcia KW1U or Greg KC1CIC for more information.
I’ve been informed the Western Mass Cycle 2 net which meets on the Mt Greylock repeater has increased it’s activity from five to seven days a week. Great work Bruce N1YCW. The Cycle 1 net has been operational daily for some time now thanks to Obie N1QOV. Both nets are found on 146.91 Mt Greylock repeater, Cycle 1 at 10 AM and Cycle 2 at 1 PM. Both have also seen an increase in traffic handled and are seeing new traffic handlers as well. Hopefully some can be encouraged to also check into the Mass Rhode Island Phone Net which serves the whole state and meets on 3978 Khz at 6 PM Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Anyone interested in CW is also welcome on the MARI CW net 3565 Khz daily at 7 PM.
As mentioned elsewhere on this page, the Cape and Islands 2 Meter Net should soon see a revival thanks to Bob N1SYC. This net has met on the Falmouth 147.375 repeater at 7:30 PM. Look for more information in the near future.
Below are the stats for July. Thanks to all for your support.
