November NKARC Meeting Recap

Pete Thomson, KE5GGY, provided an interesting and fun overview of the Santa Net and the 3916 Net.  Pete has been instrumental and active with both nets for a number of years. He says the Santa Net brings lots of joy to young and old alike and is a great way to introduce young kids to Ham Radio. The 3916 Net is a rag chew net on 3.916MHz, starting at 8PM Eastern Time each evening. They invite anyone to tune in and enjoy great stories and conversation.
