Wag (W9WAG)

I just spoke with Jo Wagnon on the phone and Wag came home last Tuesday (November 8, 2016). He is in a wheelchair but is supposed to be working on improving his leg strength by standing briefly and eventually taking some steps with a walker.

She also said he wasn’t eating enough to build his strength so I know she has quite a challenge before her. She is trying to find some help to assist her at home and has yet to get anyone. They will be staying in WI this winter.

Net Control Operators Needed

The 40 meter Eastern/Central Net needs a net control operator for the first hour on Wednesdays and a full-time net control operator for the first hour on Sundays starting November 26. Please contact Sam Haynes (WA4ICK), the net manager, if you are willing to volunteer for either of these openings or if you can help out every once in a while.

Click here to send an email message to Sam, WA4ICK.

Times may change, but not the RV Service Nets

The time changes from Daylight Savings to Standard Time on Sunday, November 6. Does that mean the RV Service Net times are also changing?

The answer to that question is a definitive “maybe.” It depends on if you keep your logs in UTC or local time.

The local start times for the nets will remain the same. For example, standard time zone times for the nets will be:

  • Eastern/Central USA and Canada Net: 7:00 – 9:00 a.m. EST
  • Rocky Mountain Net: 6:30 – 8:00 MST
  • Pacific Coast Net: 9:00 – 10:00 PST

If you live in the world of UTC, the start times for the nets will move:

  • Eastern/Central USA and Canada Net: from 11:00 UTC to 12:00 UTC
  • Rocky Mountain Net: 12:30 UTC to 13:30 UTC
  • Pacific Coast Net: 16:00 UTC to 17:00 UTC

So, the nets will operate at the same local times, but will be an hour later when looking at UTC and that may help you hear more signals during the nets.

Another update on Wag (W9WAG), our former treasurer

Jo Wagnon reports that Wag (W9WAG) is still not at home. He is currently in the rehab unit, however, he was in the hospital yesterday. He seems to improve, is moved into the rehab unit, and then gets worse, and is moved back to the hospital.

The thoughts and prayers of our members continue to be with Wag and Jo.
