Cape and Islands Traffic Net Change

EMA NTS logoMike Wilbur, N2JWW writes:

I am glad to announce effective June 11 the Cape and Islands Traffic Net will move to the N1YHS 147.375 repeater, PL 110.9. It is a new machine in Falmouth with excellent coverage both on and off cape and both islands.

I hope this move will enhance the net and allow more folks to get into the net. As always I am looking for anyone who would like to be a net control, just drop me an e-mail at n2jww.at.arrl.net.

Try and stay cool and I look forward to hearing more folks on the net.

Heavy Hitters Traffic Net “Field Day” Edition

The Heavy Hitters Traffic Net, one of the primary VHF FM local NTS nets in Eastern MA will run on a special field day schedule, according to John Miller, N1UMJ.

“HHTN will have a special ‘field day edition’ on Saturday night,” says Miller. HHTN convenes at 10:00 pm ET on the MMRA linked repeater network.

“It should have all the usual Monday-through-Friday Heavy Hitters NTS repeaters linked in. This way,” explains N1UMJ, “the field day groups that are going to get the bonus points for sending the NTS messages have an outlet to do so they might not normally have.”

[For more information about Field Day and the groups participating in Field Day ’08 in Eastern MA, see http://ema.arrl.org/fd.]
