Yes, I know, Vic KM6RWB had to step in and take control (Net Control) last Tuesday when Kathi was a No-Show. In Kathi’s defense she was out doing last minute shopping for Christmas gifts and meals and didn’t quite make it home in time for the Net. I personally was asleep in my recliner (perfect excuse). Vic in true GOTAhams fashion stepped up to his microphone and took on Net Control Duty completely cold but “Like A Boss”! Thanks Vic for being a “Super Goat”.
This Tuesday Jack KM6UNQ has volunteered to take on Net Control Duties, We meet at 7:00 PM Tuesdays on the San Dimas, Johnstone Peak, California, 446.4, WA6FZH Repeater tone 103.5
If you’re out at your New Years Eve party, Carry your HT and listen in, Check in and offer up some third party traffic check ins with your Party guests! all are welcome.
Thanks Vic KM6RWB for all your hard work putting this newsletter together for us each month. Your tireless efforts (and constant “reminders”) are greatly appreciated.
For those of you wondering “will there be a net Christmas Eve?” The answer is YES, we will be active on our regular frequency 446.400 WA6FZH repeater.
We understand that most of you will be at a family get together or Christmas party that night but, if you carry your trustee HT and check-in, we will definitely allow “third party traffic” and let EVERYONE check in to the net!
The Plan is Kathi KD6CAF will handle Net Control. We will likely do just a single round unless folks have something interesting to keep the roundtable going!
So, Charge up the Handy Talkie, carry it with you and at least monitor (with a earphone if you have to) and enjoy Christmas Eve with Mrs. Clause (Kathi).
We typically do “Radio in the Park” on the third Saturday of the month following the CARS radio swap meet. December the Granite Creek CommunityChurch is quite busy and uses all its available real estate, so the swap meet skips this month.
We will still be at San Dimas Canyon park with a HF station set up and GOTAhams hosting a more Holiday oriented version of “Radio in the Park”.
Dust of those Holiday sweaters/shirts/hoodies/sweatshirts/t-shirts and show off your holiday festive or Radio Oriented apparel. There will be judging of Ugliest, most Radio centric, Couples theme etc.
Also, bring your favorite Holiday treat to share with the group, We do understand this is “Super Saturday” (the last weekend of shopping before Christmas) So use Us as an excuse to avoid those crowds (c;
We are looking forward to seeing all those wonderful “ugly” sweaters and our Radio friends Saturday December 21st. See Ya’ there and as always everyone is Welcome, no License required Tell your friends.
