2 Meter Nets

75 degrees, mostly clear, 1.23 inches rain last night

I've never spent much time on 2 meters.  Well, my first radio was a FT60 Handheld, that serves me very well on the occasion I blow off the dust to listen to local repeater nets, or try and catch an FM satellite pass.

I decided to do a little listening tonight.  N1TUJ Eileen was hosting the Vernon EmCom net for registered members of their Emergency Communications Team.    The Bloomfield Area Radio Club BARC Radio net was conducted tonight....coming in weaker than I would hope using my HT with extended antenna.   I'll have to get the FT857 back on line for 2 meter repeater work.

There were a number of stations working the Straight Key Century Club Straight Key Sprint this evening.  I tuned around a bit and logged Russ, K0LUW a regular on the SKS circuit.  He does a nice job with a bug that looks to be homebrew from his QRZed page.
