The long-vacant position of Handiham Net Manager has finally been filled.
Congratulations and a big thank you to Handiham volunteer Matt Arthur,
KA0PQW, for accepting this position. Our Net Advisory Group and Club
President Ken, KB3LLA, agree that Matt will do a good job because he
understands the technical workings of the nets, repeater, links, and nodes
and has many years of experience that includes a wide variety of on the air
operations, emergency operations, nets, repeater ownership, and volunteer
work as an instructor at Handiham Radio Camps.
Matt is committed to working with our net control volunteers to keep the
nets on the air, maintaining good technical standards and keeping them a
place where we can check in and have fun talking with our friends. He likes
the idea of net controls being able to shape their net sessions and finding
their own ways of keeping the Handiham nets a welcoming experience for all
who want to join us for the hour. This will continue our openness to a
mostly informal and friendly net, but one with high standards that shows the
Handiham Radio Club in a good light. It also keeps the door open for us to
quickly respond to an emergency, should the frequency be needed.
Thank you, Matt for stepping up to the plate!
