Announcements / Comments

Ron Hambric

(N5SBN) * Digital coms exercise with Red Cross: 11 of our ARES club members used winlink express. If you are interested in Amateur Radio Emergency Service, contact me to join ARES.

Dick Zimmer

(W5DZ) * I worked a lot of stations across the world through AO13. It had an orbit that would allow you to work half the globe for several hours.

Phil Gates

(N5ZKF) * Repeater traffic has been low lately. Be aware that we have a lot of newly minted HAMS, so say hello

Pierre Catala

(WA1UAT) * Mid 70s in Jamaica worked a sat that had a 2M uplink and a 10M downlink. Needed 2 people. One to work the radio and the other the antennas!
