Tonights Topic for the Rag Chew was Generators...when are they worth their weight in Watts? And everyone was really good to weigh in with some great personal examples and experiences about those gas-drinkin' volt-makers. Observations about power needs, gas stablizing, maintenence and more made this topic a good one which we're sure will be a good one to bring up in detail in a article here.
A little smaller group tonight, but everyone here was pure quality, with a first time check in that will sure be comming back, KB0EMB Larry out in Independence MO...(I like the name of that pretty town)Good signal Larry, n' thanks for the relay net control.
Some "regulars" got on the payroll...KD8HDP Justin, KB1LUK Bill, KC2SGV Joe, NW8I Del, and others...although considering this is only our 4th 40 net, that's stretching the term "regular" indeed.
And despite the Pirate Radio Sermonizer who started up immediately after we closed the net, we had a great time, sharing great advice and info about electrical generators and showing again that a net of good hams is always a benefit. To the Pirates Credit, they were nice to hold off until we were through....a Polite Pirate...ARRRRG! '73 KI4HEE
BTW... Tonights 40 meter Net Signal Plot via Google Earth includes a Ireland DX Station, EI6JK Mark who got on the list during the pre-net.
Here's tonights "Generator Gang"...
