We had a great time! We always enjoy seeing familiar faces that we talk to regularly and meeting new people. The festivities included everyone selecting little presents that “Santa Joe” brought. A couple of lucky people were winners of the 900MHz radios that were donated by Society of Broadcast Engineer’s Jack Roland and brought in person by Skyler. The grand prize winner was our own Net Control Operator, Bruce, who won an AnyTone radio, donated by a generous person who wishes to remain anonymous.
The evening was capped off by our guest speakers, Trish, K9FOG, and Brian, K9ATK, each talking about their respective experiences and nets on the RMRL. Trish started the YL Family Net (great for ALL members of the family) and Brian is a co-host of the Pet Net (along with Becky, KD0AOE.)
A special guest, Thunder, attended in an ambassadorial capacity.
If you missed it this year, we hope you can join us next year!
Thanks to Bruce, KB0PHD, for the photographs.
