Monthly Archives: August 2015


For more than 10 years I have been doing the weekly Net on Thursday nights, taking over the LAUSD Net started by Gary Franks, W6NVY, more than 20 years ago.

Well, I’ve decided it’s time to move on and give up my Net Control duties.

Steve, K6CRW, has been a great help by volunteering to do the nets every other week and, recently more often than that, when I have been tied up by “real life” events.

But, the time has come for me to pass the torch and let someone else take over as Net Control for these nets. I will continue through the end of the year, but will not do any nets after that.

If anyone would like to volunteer to help Steve out and take over Net Control duties on a semi-regular basis, please let us know. You can contact me via email at N6CIZ@ARRL.NET and let me know that you are interested. Steve and I can help you out and show you the ropes.
