Listening to (and participating in!) the W8UM net for Sunday, November 18, 2012

My friend Dan KB6NU was network control for the W8UM net tonight at 8:00 p.m. Eastern (145.230 MHz, -600 kHz shift, 100 Hz PL). This was my first try at being on for the net, and so I waited patiently until my radio started making noises other than static.

After most everyone else checked in, I hit the transmit button and gave my call sign (KD8OQG) and was acknowledged by Dan. 

Among other things discussed tonight:

The Amateur Radio Relay League's Logbook of the World;
Where to get amateur radio gear in Hawaii, for someone traveling there;
The Monday, November 19 2012 performance of the Michigan Youth Symphony Orchestra at Hill Auditorium. 

I mostly listened, but it was an enjoyable hour spent, and it's always good to tune in to a good discussion.
