NET CHECK-IN’s:

Actually, the correct answer is 1892.  I gave out the wrong answer on purpose tonight to see if anyone would complain and to see how many of those looked up the right answer on the Internet.  Ha ha.  I’m a funny guy.  Congratulations to the following people who likely looked up the answer on the Internet!:

  • Brian — K6FIN
  • John — KD6JEV
  • Thomas — KE6MSS
  • Timothy — KJ6TIG
