National GMRS Net – Session 7

Session 7 of the National GMRS Net saw a total of 77 check-ins; the net was managed with a new spreadsheet that works very well in handling all the new people. Net control for the evening was David, WQVS960.

The topic of the evening was the Coronavirus; what are your thoughts, are you doing anything to prepare, and how many rolls of toilet paper do you have stocked up? Responses are logged below.

The net was live-streamed via YouTube, but due to operator error (Sorry!) Net Control audio was not recorded. Station traffic can still be heard, however. We’ll get it next time –
