New Nightly NTS Net Coming to W4GSO
At the GARA meeting on September 25, the club was presented with an opportunity to help the ARRL National Traffic System cover some territory that has has not been consistently served by the System in the Piedmont Triad area. Clyde Sawyer, WC9CW and Kenny Grabarczyk, KK4HAO who will serve as Traffic Manager for the new Piedmont Triad Traffic net, gave examples of traffic that is passed by the system and showed how it works. As a result, and after a vote by all members present, GARA has offered the use of our VHF repeater to be used for this new net every evening at 7:30pm EST. Please be aware of it and make every effort to keep the repeater clear during this time.
There are also efforts underway to provide training to anyone interested in handling traffic for the NTS net. Additional information will be posted once it is available.
If you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help with the NTS net, please contact Kenny directly by e-mailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
