At Net’s beginning Ops were experiencing high noise levels. KE6YHX took charge of NC duties…THANKS, COREY! W6ZE/KE6YHX checked in WØMEC, K6PAD, KJ6OML, KJ6JKA, W6ATB, and WB6IXN. IXN cudn’t find KJ6JKA’s name listed on the Club Roster. We appreciate Wil’s checkins to the Net! JKA and NC find communications rough! OML said the Triumvirate: OML, AF6C, and DLA, serviced 12 Talking Book machines. NC said PAD’s sigs were weak tonite…ARN at IXN’s QTH were S9 at checkin but improved during the Net to S6. ATB was running 200W tonite.
W6ZE/KE6YHX checked in K6PAD, AF6N, WØMEC, KJ6OML, and WB6IXN (listening but not heard). IXN tried to check in on the HT but NC didn’t hear him! OML and AF6N discussed the Club’s upcoming Christmas Dinner at Mimi’s, and MEC had strong sigs at IXN’s QTH. Again, we appreciate YHX running 2 Nets tonite!
W6ZE/KE6YHX checked in WB6IXN, WØMEC, W6ATB, K6PAD, KK6REB, and N6HC. We thank Corey, YHX, fer assuming NC duties on both the 10m & 2m Nets tonite!...TNX, Corey. IXN has ordered a new microphone for his ailing 2m rig, and MEC acted as a relay for PAD to Corey. PAD was down in the QRN at IXN’s QTH, and, Phil talked to Santa Claus in Japan on 20m! NC cud not copy REB who had just got back home after walking the dog. N6HC checked in to wish all a HNY, read the mail, and report that REB had HUM on his sigs!
W6ZE/KE6YHX checked in WØMEC, AF6N, WB6IXN, N6CEB(?), and K6PAD. IXN, still awaiting a new mike, checked into Net on the HT using the 2m/440 Diamond ant. MEC copied NC well before the end of the Net. IXN copied MEC 5/9. AF6N attended last Club meeting, and Jeff heard most Ops tonite. IXN was using around 4 W on the HT tonite, and CTB(?) was lighting up 4 bars. Chris(?) won the $200 HRO Certificate, and PAD ‘flew in and flew out’, and YHX is busy decorating for Christmas. Again, we thank Corey for handling 2 Nets tonite! IXN hopes to have a new mike for the 2m rig soon!
W6ZE/KE6YHX checked in WB6IXN, KJ6OML, W6JTT, WØMEC, and K6PAD. IXN is still waiting for the arrival of a microphone for the 2m rig, and we thank YHX fer NC duties tonite! OML wishes all a HNY and Gene has high QRN tonite. JTT and PAD have 5/9 sigs at IXN’s QTH and Ops hear PAD well on lower power tonite. MEC checked in wid a slight warble on his check-in sigs wid FB audio following. YHX & PAD exchange sig reports wid IXN receiving all OP sigs 5/9, wid PAD sigs FB on lower power!
W6ZE/KE6YHX checked in K6PAD, KJ6oML, W6JTT, KB6PAL, and KK6TRC. PAD, using 20W tonite, wishes a Merry Christmas and a HNY to all. OML changed the 2m ant and can now hear better, and Gene said no Braille Institute this week. JTT, after a slight pause, lit up 4 bars at IXN’s QTH as Sam plans to check out the feedline. YHX put up a 2m ant, and, we TNX Corey for handling 2 Nets the past two weeks. Hopefully IXN’s new mike should arrive soon! Lee & IXN will be home for Christmas…Plans for Oregon vanished wid the rain and snow! PAL said the XYL over-decorated and now hee is blowing breakers at the QTH…OPs said some trimmings might be shorting ou wid the rain! TRC said all his Christmas trimming lights are new this year. IXN’s decorations are all indoors after Christmas grinches stole and broke his outdoor trimmings!
W6ZE/KE6YHX checked in WØMEC, WB6IXN, KR6PIH(?), and KJ6OML. IXN cudn’t find any KR6PIH listed wid the FCC! MEC’s sigs were OK wid NC but weak at IXN’s QTH, and MEC’s sigs were just above QRN level. OML and YHX discussed he WX briefly…rain by Saturday. Did IXN copy a wrong call for PIH?
W6ZE/KE6YHX checked in KK6TRC,, WB6IXN, W6ETC, KK6FYG, and KJ6OML. TRC will help brother, Tom, ETC get ready fer Tom’s move to Idaho. All Ops passed around HNYs to the Net. IXN still awaits shipment of his new microphone for the 2m rig. OML heard all sigs tonite and Gene will not be at next Club meeting. FYG reported 2 ft. of snow in Rialto from the last storm, and, we thank Corey for NC duties on both the 10m and 2m Nets! IXN thinks his new mike should soon arrive!
