The T.G.I.F. Net is Moving
(Thank Goodness It's Friday Net)

It is still every Friday at 6:30pm but moving to the VVARA Mingus 2m Repeater on 147.220 MHz. For more repeater info see the Repeaters page. This is a generic type net similar to the Knobby Knee Net, but starting with a different leading question each week that everyone should be able to answer followed by each participant providing general comments on their activities for that day or week.

The T.G.I.F. Net is hosted each Friday evening by John N7LQR, which many of you know from the 60's Net on Tuesday evenings. The T.G.I.F. Net is on the air!

The VVARA monthly club meeting was an internet on-line meeting. The presentation was by Doug NO1D.
