Below is the September traffic report for the combined sections of East and West Mass. While participation and traffic numbers have been down, hopefully with cooler weather and holidays coming up we will see an increase.
I was invited and gave a presentation on message handling to the members of the PART Club in Westford in September. Members had little to no knowledge about traffic nets and message handling in general and the information was well received. I would like to encourage your clubs to also learn about the very vital skills of accurate and efficient message handling and net operation. If your club would like more information let me know.
Also in September I attended a very successful convention at Boxboro. We held a Meet and Greet session for traffic handlers which was well attended by active traffic handlers from all over New England, and a good discussion on the status of nets and message handling was held. Of course it is also good to see in person the folks we talk with regularly on the nets.
Traditional holidays are coming up so consider surprising a friend or relative with a unique holiday greeting via radiogram. They may even learn a little something about amateur radio.
73 and thanks for your support.
