Below is the April traffic report for the combined sections of East and West Mass. As always we are indebted to Greg KC1CIC for compiling these reports. Thanks also to all those who submitted their reports. Our sections are doing very well. Anyone is welcome to submit a Station Activity Report (SAR) and/or a Public Service Honor Roll report (PSHR) but remember to be counted on the Honor Roll you must have attained 70 points or higher. Information is on the website ema.arrl.org/national-traffic-system. Note that points are given for various aspects of public service, not just traffic related functions.
It is good to see more folks handling traffic and some are even reaching out to become net control stations. Some are also learning how to handle messages using packet and pactor. Speaking of messaging using digital modes, save the weekend of September 8 and 9 (weekend after Labor Day). Greg and I will be giving a presentation on messaging using Packet and Pactor and the Winlink software for both NTS and Emcomm. The schedule is not yet available but stay tuned.
I am fortunate this spring to be able to attend Dayton Hamvention, one might call the “Mecca” of ham conventions. This year the emphasis is on public service. It should be interesting. If anyone has a chance to attend I’m sure you will enjoy it.
Happy spring to all and see you on the nets.
