TRAFFIC REPORT FOR EAST AND WEST MASS OCTOBER 2014

Greetings all traffic handlers and potential traffic handlers.  I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.  The holiday season is upon us and traditionally this has been a time of increased activity on the nets. Sadly, as you know, the internet, instant messaging, etc. have changed the activity on the traffic nets.  We used to see many radiograms containing holiday greetings to family and friends. In recent times this activity has dropped off significantly.  What an opportunity however to introduce amateur radio to those friends and family members in a unique manner. Let’s keep the nets busy during December by spreading some holiday cheer and helping friends and family to know about this great hobby of ours. It can be a simple “arl sixty one” to a more personal greeting. See you on the nets.
73, Marcia KW1U

STM REPORT FOR JULY AND AUGUST

 

Greetings all traffic handlers in East and West Mass.  Below find the July and August traffic reports for both Massachusetts sections.  Thanks to all of you for your support of the nets and handling of NTS messages.  We have greatly missed the services of Byron K1YCQ who became a silent key.  Thanks to those who have stepped up to help fill his shoes.  We sure could use some more help however.  The EM2MN net currently has only three net control stations, N1SYC, N1LUM and KW1U.  This is the place to get some training and experience so that should an emergency situation arise you will be prepared to step up and assume control of a net.  Speak to N1SYC if you would like to give it a try on the EM2MN or N1LUM for the HHTN.

We are also about to lose the services of Dave KB1WOD who is moving to Vermont.  Dave has handled a lot of messages for the north shore as well as other areas, and he will be sorely missed.  We thank Dave for all his support and we wish him well at his new QTH.  Maybe we will hear him on HF?  Hope you won’t forget us Dave.

I will be adding some more traffic tips which you will find on the menu on the left.  The next one will be on handling instructions which should be up in the next few days.  These HX instructions are put there by the originators for a reason and as delivering or relay stations we are obliged to observe them.  The most common one we see is the HXC which requests a message back to the originator about date and time of delivery.  I will have more on this in the traffic tips.

I hope everyone had a good summer and is getting antennas etc ready for winter.  See you on the traffic nets.

73, Marcia KW1U

TRAFFIC HANDLING AND TRAINING SYMPOSIUM

New Hampshire Section Manager Pete Stohrer K1PJS has given permission to post the following.  Note that the symposium is open to all, and I encourage Massachusetts hams to sign up.  I plan to be there along with N1OTC and we hope to see some of you folks there too, whether you are new to traffic handling, interested in trying a new mode (ie CW or digital), or looking for a refresher73, Marcia KW1U

 

Attention Traffic Handlers and interested Amateurs

A Traffic Handling and Training Symposium is scheduled in Concord (NH) for August 30th from 9A until 1p, the meeting location will be at Concord Bible Fellowship, 25 Rockingham St.

The meeting will discuss the basics of traffic handling, radiogram structure, CW and voice traffic net protocols, the National Traffic System (NTS) and the National Traffic System Digital (NTSD).

Traffic Handling is a skill all Amateurs should be familiar with. During emergencies you may be called to help pass messages when the regular communication infrastructure is down.

The ARRL had its formation around Traffic Handling and it is a skill as much needed today as then.

Lunch will be provided. The symposium is open to all. If you would like to attend send an email to peter@k1pjs.com

Good Food, Good Conversation: 2014 NTS Traffic Handlers Picnic

Marcia Forde, KW1U writes:

The rain held off, at least until 3 PM and the cloud cover kept the temperatures comfortable as a good group enjoyed good food and good conversation at the 2014 Traffic Handlers picnic at the Senior Center in Raynham MA Sunday August 3. The day was only dampened by the news that one of our most regular attendees was and will be greatly missed as we learned that Byron, K1YCQ became a Silent Key. A moment of silence was held in honor of Byron.

Those present included KW1U, N1OTC, N1TF, KB1WXC, W1HL, WA1LPM, N1LKJ, N1UMJ, N1IQI, N1WCO, K9HI, KA1OCF, KB1ZWZ plus a few harmonics. We were sorry to miss Dan, KC1AXR who arrived shortly after we had all left due to the arrival of raindrops. I want to especially thank Jim, N1LKJ for obtaining permission to use this fine facility, and Jack N1OTC who was again the master grill chef and did a superb job. Thanks also to all the others who brought all kinds of goodies. Jack was also the winner of the drawing for the new Amateur Radio Handbook, and Bob, N1SYC won the new Public Service Handbook, both donated by our Section Manager Phil, K9HI. Many thanks to Phil. Those of you who were unable to attend missed a good time. We hope to see you next year.

TRAFFIC REPORT FOR EAST AND WEST MASS JUNE 2014

Below is the June traffic report for the combined sections of East and West Mass. I regret to report that the Mass Rhode Island Phone Net has been de-activated for the time being due to lack of participation. If in the future there is sufficient interest in resuming a voice net on HF for Massachusetts and Rhode Island I would be happy to re-activate the net.  Anyone interested please get in touch with me (kw1u@arrl.net).

At this writing, one of our most active traffic handlers, Byron K1YCQ has been hospitalized and been in and out of intensive care for several weeks. Our thoughts and prayers are with Byron and his family for his recovery.  We hope to hear him back on the air as soon as he is able.

73, Marcia KW1U

TRAFFIC REPORT FOR EAST AND WEST MASS APR 2014

Sorry for the late posting.  Vacations, while  relaxing, can be stressful trying to play catch-up.  Thanks to all for your support of the nets, to the net managers, net controls, and those who bring and take traffic. Thanks especially to Mark AC7RB, a relative newcomer to the nets, who has been originating traffic (and receiving responses in return).  I would like to encourage more folks to originate messages to be brought to the nets, messages to friends, families, ham radio contacts, members of an organization to which you belong, etc.  This is what will help keep nets alive and folks trained in message handling. How about originating one message per week, or at least one per month.  If all traffic handlers in the country did so think how much fun message handling could be.  73, Marcia KW1U

TRAFFIC REPORT FOR EAST AND WEST MASS MAR 2014

Thanks to all the traffic handlers for your support of the nets.  I was invited to attend the New Hampshire ARES Academy in March and was pleased to see the interest in message handling and in NTS and NTSD in particular.  It was pointed out that the primary function of Amateur Radio was the handling of messages. Handling record traffic with it’s accountability is an especially important skill.  Being able to run an efficient net is another important skill.  Both are practiced regularly by you folks who support the nets.  Keep up the good work, and encourage others to learn and practice these skills.

JANUARY, 2014 TRAFFIC REPORT

The January traffic report can be found by scrolling down this page.  Great job all.  We even have a report for the Cape and Islands (CITN) and New England Phone Net (NEPN).  Thanks Mike.  More folks are reporting Station Activity Reports (SAR) and PSHR (Public Service Honor Roll).  Anyone who handles traffic can send an SAR to your STM.  To be included in the PSHR report however you must earn a minimum of 70 points.  See the left side column on this page for information on SAR and PSHR.

We appreciate all your support on the nets.  A couple nets however can use some extra support.  The Mass Rhode Island Phone (MARIPN) meets on 3918 Khz at 5:30 PM Monday through Friday.  Some new callsigns are being seen there.  Keep up the good work.  Maybe we will be able to return to 7 days a week so that the working folks can make the 5:30 time slot.  Also Heavy Hitters (HHTN) has a few regulars but we would like to see more of you night owls checking into this net at 10:00PM on the MMRA linked repeaters (see mmra.org for details).

If anyone would like help with message handling or net procedures, please contact KW1U@arrl.net or one of the net managers listed below.  Hope everyone is surviving this arctic winter.  Remember spring is just around the corner and it will be time again for antenna work.

73, Marcia KW1U

TRAFFIC REPORT FOR EAST AND WEST MASS NOV 2013

Here are the stats for November.  I’m happy to report that thanks to members of the Boston Amateur Radio Club the 145.23 repeater is back near coverage of pre-antenna damage daysMany thanks to those guys who braved the heights and weather to raise the new antenna.  We are now able to move the EM2MN solely to the Boston repeater and it has made a noticeable difference in net participation.  It is good to see some of the old regulars returning.

I’m also happy to report that Bob Holland N1SYC has agreed to assume managership of EM2MN effective December 1 2013.  We thank John Campbell KB1ENV for his service to the net, and hope in time he will find some time to join us again.  We thank Bob, and I’m sure you will give him your support.

Packet traffic is moving again.  We had some problems with nodes making it difficult to pass traffic between KW1U and N1XTB-4, but many thanks to Jim W1JT who has made his node accessible for our use.  Anyone interested in NTSDigital can get in touch with me (KW1U) for information.

The CW net (MARI) has been doing well.  I’m considering increasing from 5 to 7 nights a week.  Hopefully this will allow some others to participate.  We have outlets on this net for Central and Western Mass as well as East Mass, so do come join us.  For information or help with CW let me know.

Happy Holidays to all!  from Marcia KW1U
