Greetings all traffic handlers,
Attached is the May traffic report for the combined sections of East and West Mass. Thanks to all for your support, and as always a special thanks to Greg KC1CIC for compiling the report and to all who make the deliveries, whether by phone, email, USPS or bicycle. As some of you know Dan N1AXR is back on the nets and hand-delivering messages by travelling around the area on his bike. As you can see, there is no end of possibilities in message handling.
Just a reminder that Field Day is this coming weekend June 23-24. I hope many of you will be able to participate. Additional points are given for formal radiograms sent to the SM K1TW or SEC KC1CIC in EMA, SM KB1LRL or SEC N2YHK in WMA as well as up to 10 additional messages sent throughout NTS at 10 points per message. Make sure your club is taking advantage of this opportunity and offer to help there as needed.
Also a reminder that the annual traffic handlers picnic will be held Sunday August 12 from noon to 4 PM in Concord MA at the KW1U QTH. Any traffic handler or would-be traffic handler in New England is invited. A head count would be appreciated if you plan to attend so we have enough food. Hamburgers and hot dogs will be provided. More details will follow next month.
73, Marcia KW1U
