New - Readiness Net to start on Mon, 02/27 at 7:00pm. Net Control will be Ken-KE5BNO.

At the 02/23 WFARC club meeting, further discussion of the proposed West Fork ARC Readiness Net was held.

It was decided that the Net will be conducted bi-weekly, (twice a month), on the 2nd and 4th Mondays at 7:00pm, on the WFARC W5WFR 442.600, pl 131.8 repeater. A Net Control Operator rotation schedule was created for NCO's calling future scheduled nets.

The inaugural Net will be called on Mon, 02/27 at 7:00pm. Net Control will be Ken-KE5BNO.

We hope that everyone will at least check in to the net, and advise Net Control, "No traffic", if you do not want to remain, or be called later for any comments.

I will enjoy checking each of you in, and welcoming you to our new Net. All are welcome.
