YACHT Net of July 1
The first net of our annivesary month was a dandy...
Aiden K1ARD age 12 of Maine acted as net control and did an outstanding job. 21 check ins with 10 youth hams included. Aiden is now part of our youth team of 6 net controls who have conducted at least 1 net in 2017. Other volunteers are welcome.
Hammies/YACHT Friendship net of July brought in 8 stations including KD9HGO and KS8O from the states and the rest from So. Africa. Father and son team Glen ZU6G age 12 and his dad Shane ZS6W also joined us as did Greg ZS6NY who son will join us next month. Robert ZU6BOB also dropped in. He is in the equivalent of Gr. 12.
Members are encouraged to call "CQ YACHT Members" on 14.327.00 during our anniversary month and make contact. 28.327 can also be used for those without higher class privileges. YACHT POWER throughout the U.S. and the World.
Also mentioned is that Carole Perry will present her famous "Youth Forum" in early October at the Michigan ARRL Great Lakes Div. HamCon. She is looking for youth candidates to make presentations, preferably YACHT members, but anyone who will make a positive impression on youth in ham radio and have made contributions to their community and ham radio.
An average of 18 check ins for the month of June. Let's increase that for our special month of July. Already a good start.
