NET REVIEW...

Another fantastic net in the log books. 26 check ins lasting 1 hr. 30 min., 13 youth checked in, 20 members from 9 states. These young hams and 1 non-ham: KE0BPK, KD8ZAF and friend Gabe, KC9ZJX, KD9FYV, W9IAN, KM4ATT, N1SPY, KF5BEW, KF5FYS, N5KWG, N5GNR, N5APP. Thanks to them and adult hams who found their way on to my logbook. OUr 2nd highest count. Are we growing, or what?

YOUTH NET CONTROLS...

Since I will not be available on Sat. to run the net, Shelby KD9FYV, age 12 will take over. I may listen in while at our local club's Winter banquet. Then on Feb. 4, Kyle N5KWG age 9 will head up the net. I could use a few more, so if anyone out there would like to join our ANC (Associate Net Control) group, let me know.
