We had a light turn out today, but we had fun none the less ... and once again 4 of us continued for a couple of hours after most left … It just takes a lot of time to solve all the world’s ham problems.
On deck today were Dr Mark KK6SMD and Midge W6LIK from the Seal Beach/Cerritos area. Jerry K6AV came and it was great to see him since he hasn’t been in a while. He's looking good! Some of the other usual suspects were there, including some of our best supporters and joined in a good brunch and conversation.
Changing the subject a bit ... Sam KK6HMK and Mike AE6VM have done an incredible job with the DARN Chat Net for over 4 years now … Boy is it hard to believe it has been that long! They have always had a lots of folks checking in and it has been good fun.
For a variety of reasons Sam and Mike want to ease out of doing the Sunday Night Chat Net, though they will still be available to help and may well chip in going forward. Graciously, Mark KK6SMP and Midge W6LIK, with the help of a few others, have volunteered to take over and run the chat net on Sunday nights at 7:45 PM, just as it has been for 4 years. Mark runs a great Red Cross Net each week, as well as other nets and I am sure he and Midge will do a fantastic job. They say they will start the new Chat net a week from this Sunday on February 17th at 1945 (7:45pm).
I will be there to check in … join me.
