We had six checkins to the net tonight:


K5FRT - Jack

KG5ITZ - Darryl

KC5LSP - Dave (on 70cm)

WB5RFQ - Gil

K1PEC - Ron (on 2m and 70cm)

W5RAC - Ray


Was there anyone else trying to check in that we didn't hear?  All in all,
things seemed to work better than last week. 


Jack, it seemed like your contact was intermittent, but when I heard you,
you were loud and clear.  Ray, I could copy you, just barely - maybe an
antenna issue?  Let me know if either of you want to try a contact sometime
and we can do some more testing.


Ron and I did a test after the net, and we didn't have any problem
communicating on VHF.  Transmitting on UHF (which I did not use during the
net), my signal was intermittent.  Looks like I need to get my antenna a bit
higher for UHF to get into the Bellville repeater (about 20 miles), it is
surrounded by trees.


Thanks to everyone who checked in tonight!
