  4. AB1LZ: Mary has already been net control for the NE Region 3 Net for Granby ARES
  5. KB1KCB: Welcome aboard Mary. Query to K1IN – has K1IN’s key. What is repeater location?
  6. W1SL: Welcome Mary, no other traffic.
  7. K1PZS: Good turnout on tonight’s net. Has been listening to repeater – concerned about emergency power for it (went down during storm), repeater has also been very quiet.
  8. AC1N and WA1ICN commented on the repeater power – WA1ICN suggested using generator. Discussed IDer issue as being likely thermal. AC1N talked about adding more features to repeater to drive increased traffic / utilization. Recognized need to move repeater to make it more effective – coordinator needs more documentation to make decision.
  9. AC1N commented on excellent net turnout, also congrats to Mary and suggested net control at some point.
Net closed 19:23 by AC1N Net Control.
