NET REVIEW... Another great net for the beginning of the Fall season. 18 check ins with 9 youth finding space in my log.
Could still use a youth net control for this Saturday's net as it is the 5th one in the month. If no one steps up to the plate, I will take over. Violetta KM4ATT has agreed to run the net for Oct 7.
MICHIGAN HAMCON...As I've mentioned previously here, Jim KS8O and I will be attending the first ever Great Lakes Division hamfest the first weekend in October. We will set up a YACHT display at the RCA table with permission of Carole Perry. Jim and I will staff the table to promote YACHT and youth hams in general. At 2pm on Saturday, Carole Perry will present her famous Youth Forum. One of our members, Dhruv Rebba KC9ZJX, will make a presentation. According to Carole, several others are also on the agenda.
**Jim and I would like to encourage other YACHT members to consider making the trip to Michigan International Speedway at Brooklyn, MI, the site of the Great Lakes Division Hamfest. We sure would like to meet some of our members, that we missed by not attending Hamvention last May. If you live within reasonable driving distance of Ham Con, we would like to invite you to show up at the RCA table between 10am and 2pm, at which time we will attend the Youth Forum.
