Tonight, January 24th, a new weekly net will be starting on W8WKY 147.39 MHz. Every Sunday night at 10:00pm local time, Chris KE8QFQ will be hosting the Borealis Net. A group of people have been gathering informally on the repeater around this time to keep Mike KC3QFC -a Fedex long-haul driver – company while passing through. That group has grown large enough that they want to try to formalize a new on Sunday night net around the activity, similar to how the Barometer Net is organized. This is a new, unique time to have a net in this area so make plans to tune in if you’re a night owl!
