This is a reminder about GRARA, W8DC open radio room on Wednesday
nights at 7:15 at the Red Cross.
Last night, Mike (K8EX) found a short band opening on 10 meters. Steve
(KC8WQL) and others talked to GRARA member Dave Ed (AC8AB) down in
Florida on EchoLink. And of course Robert (KD8BIH) and Gary (KD8AZM)
ran the regular Wednesday night 2-Meter net.
Bob (KD8HNF ...Happy Naughty Fellow) brought in his new HT to share
while Steve (KC8WQL) gave him some pointers. Mike (KD8DLG) and Gary
(KD8AZM) made contacts on VoIP using the CQ100 software tranceiver,
Gary's laptop and the radio room WiFi.
We welcomed first time visitors Mark (KB8SVV) from Kentwood and Dave
(N8WVI) from Portage.
