Hard to believe Thanksgiving is almost here. After a rather summer-like fall we are finally seeing some wintry weather but the holidays have stealthily crept up on us. It would sure be nice to see some holiday greeting radiograms on our traffic nets. I hope folks will consider this unique way of letting families and friends know you are thinking of them.
It is always nice to see newcomers handling messages on the nets and we welcome Peter KC1HHO to those ranks of traffic handlers. Peter is in Quincy and I’m sure he would like to see some messages coming his way.
Propagation on HF has hit a winter low again. Our section nets have seen some difficult times at net time. The CW net which normally meets on 3565 Khz at 7PM has occasionally moved to 1810 Khz on the 160 meter band. We are fortunate to have several folks with capability on that band and we have had success in moving traffic there. Keep tuned to 3565 however as we will always start there then move as necessary.
Below is the traffic report for October. Thanks to all participants for your support.
