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.
