NTSD Available for Field Day Messages (And Beyond)

NTSD – The National Traffic System Digital network runs alongside the traditional NTS nets and covers the entire United States with liaison into Canada. Message traffic placed into the NTSD is relayed via scanning HF Pactor 2 and Pactor 3 MBO’s throughout the country which operate 24/7 and are accessed regularly by assigned digital relay stations who remove traffic from the MBO’s for local relay or delivery. The system is managed by area digital coordinators. Station KW1U in Concord MA operates a 24/7 MBO on HF with a VHF link on 145.09 Mhz via W1JOE-7 into the N1XTB-4 BBS.

For Field Day messages in Eastern Mass, it is best to put messages on the N1XTB BBS which will then forward to KW1U for relay on HF as needed. See instructions on the ‘nts.ema.arrl.org ‘website under ‘packet procedures’ for help. If you are unable to access this BBS, station KW1U can be accessed via HF Pactor 1, 2 or 3 on one of the scanning frequencies below, all given in center frequencies: 3591.9, 3593.9, 7100.4, 7102.4 10140.9, 10142.9, 14095.9, 14097.9, 14112.4. For help contact Marcia at kw1u@arrl.net or kw1u@winlink.org.

Good luck with Field Day, and keep those messages coming!

73, Marcia KW1U

MARCIA KW1U APPOINTED EASTERN MA SECTION TRAFFIC MANAGER

NEW EMA SECTION TRAFFIC MANAGER


On February 06, 2011 Jim N1LKJ turned the reigns of Section Traffic Manager over to Marcia KW1U. After many years of didicated work to the section and to NTS in general Jim has found it necessary to back off of some of his many duties do to health and personal situations. Jim has worked very hard and making NTS the best that it can be and has been loved by all that ever came in contact with him. He will surely be missed but he says he isn’t leaving. Whew!.


Marcia KW1U is a long time native of Concord, MA and a devoted NTS operator. She is involved in all aspects of NTS holding many offices and job and it is only an extreme pleasure to have her now working again with the Eastern Massachusetts Traffic Section. I hope we can serve you as well as you have served everyone you have touched over the years.

New Section Traffic Manager: Marcia Forde, KW1U

I’m pleased to announce that Marcia Forde, KW1U of Concord MA has agreed to accept the position of Section Traffic Manager effective immediately. Marcia replaces Jim Ward, N1LKJ who has served faithfully as STM for the section for many years. When I assumed the Section Manager role, Jim indicated to me that he wanted to step down, but was willing to serve as long as needed. I promised Jim that I would make it my priority to find a top-notch replacement. I know that I have succeeded in Marcia.

Marcia rose steadily in the National Traffic System ranks after first getting her feet wet in traffic handling in 1981. Not long after, she became an active member of the elite Transcontinental Corps; later, serving as TCC Director for the Eastern Area. Marcia also served as manager of Eastern Area Net Cycle 2.

KW1U previously served as the Eastern MA Section Traffic Manager for five years back in the 80s. In addition to her “new-old” STM duties, Marcia currently serves at the national level in NTS as Chair of the Eastern Area Staff. Somehow, she also manages to find the time to run a “24×7 multiband scanning Pactor MBO on HF serving the continental US, with local outlet on VHF packet.”

Jim is not disappearing from the picture completely, however. He has graciously agreed to assist Marcia with some of the day-to-day workload. Thanks, Jim!

Please join me in welcoming Marcia Forde, KW1U to this important section leadership position!

73,

Phil Temples, K9HI
