National GMRS Net – Session 9

Session 9 of the National GMRS Net saw a total of 89 check ins. We structured the net a little differently this time, with a roll call followed by the round table. We expected the numbers to dip a bit as a result; but it seemed that the new structure seemd say that the whole thing seemed to go much more smoothly as a result.

The topic of the evening was: name the greatest act of kindness or the most bizarre behavior you’ve witnessed in the last two weeks. Responses are recorded below

The net was live-streamed via YouTube, as well as on the live audio stream. The recording can be accessed here:
