A HUGE THANK YOU

Thank you to three Geratolers for stepping up to help run the Net. Thanks to Dan K2DJL for volunteering to run the net for the next two Monday nights. Thank you to Steve AC9GK for volunteering to run the net on the remaining Monday nights through the end of the season. Also thank you to JJ W5RJJ for volunteering to run the net if required. What a great bunch of Geratolers.

If you hear these guys on, be sure to thank them for stepping up to the plate. I personally can not hank them enough. Great job guys.

URGENT Need NCS Help

Dale WG5N has left his hone for 13 weeks on a trip with his wife. Due to this we need an NCS to start running the Net starting January 18 through the end of the season. I am going to run it tonight and Dan K2DJL will run the Net the following two Monday nights. After that NO one is signed up to run it on Monday nights through the end of the season. Even if you could run it for a few weeks it would help.

Also I will be gone from Feb. 12th through April 1st. and some one will have to pick up Friday nights during my absence. So guys, belly up to the bar and help out. It’s actually pretty easy and fun.

Thanks for any support you can offer to keep the Net going.

Postal Service Problems

The reason for the Jan. 8th date is that the Lady I talked to in Washington from the Postal Service advised me not to send any packages (mailing tubes) until this date. She said they should have all of the Christmas mail out of the way by then. Seems like they have a lot bigger problem than they are letting on to. I have a package coming to me that was mailed on 12-3-2020 coming from southern Ohio and it just now (according to the tracking) got out of Granville PA. with no expected delivery date. Go figure.

Any way your awards will still be processed the same day that I receive them and I will let you know via email or a phone call. I will have all certificates done the same day as I get your application but wont mail them until Jan 8th. Thanks for your patience.

Problems with the Postal Service

Effective immediately I will process awards as usual, however, I will not start mailing certificates until January 8th, 2021. I will notify you of your awards and the numbers of the awards. I will need a valid email address with your submission for notification purposes. This problem all started back on October 16 2020. I mailed a certificate to a location in Pennsylvania on that date and it still has not been delivered. I mailed a replacement certificate for that one after two weeks and it took 33 days to be delivered and then only after getting some help from a Lady in Washington from the Postal service. Since then I have mailed several certificates etc. and they have taken a long time to get delivered. Don’t worry, you will get your certificates after January 8th.

If you have any questions please send me an emailed so I can reply. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes.

G NET HEALTH & WELFARE

I talked with Kenny KE9TC and Harv AA4HF today. Kenny sounded a lot better and he is making progress and taking one day at a time. But he really did sound better. I also talked with Harv and he is much better. He sounded great and was no longer bed ridden. He said that flat smooth surfaces to walk on were great but steps were still a challenge. Anyway, it sounds as if both are on the road to recovery. Both also said to tell everyone hello and to have a good Christmas and New Year coming up.
