Meeting was convened at 8:00 P.M. local time by net control operator W1SL (Woody).

Repeater used was the East Hartland repeater on 145.23 MHz (-), K1YON, through the good graces of Ted, K1YON. 146.22 and 146.82 freqs were monitored by net control with no stations heard on these frequencies.

Check-ins on 145.23:

  1. Woody, W1SL, Bloomfield, commercial power
  2. Josh, AC1N, mobile
  3. Bill, AB1LZ,Weatogue, commercial power
  4. Roger, K1PAI, Wethersfield, commercial power
  5. Michael, Windsor, commercial power

Business and Comments:

  • Josh described the successful ham radio “EXPO” put on by BARC at the Farmers’ Market held at the Forge in Hartford. Apparently it was a useful way to expose the public to amateur radio. Thanks Josh!
  • Roger mentioned his very busy time spent with SKYWARN vis-a-vis the recent storms we had been experiencing.

The net was closed at 8:15 and the K1YON repeater  returned to normal use with thanks extended to Ted, K1YON
