The Club was recently approached by Jay – KE6GLA of the El Dorado County Amateur Radio Club to facilitate a combined IRLP Net between both club repeaters. They had 20 stations who partook in the net including a high school student Austin KN6HZM who had only just recently obtained his licence and our club members were the first international contacts for him. A memorable moment. The club wishes to thank those who participated in the net and hope to connect again in the future.
