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.

Help Needed on the Net

The Net needs a couple of volunteers to fill in for Bob AI4IL on Wed. nights for two more nights after tonight and someone to fill in on Tuesday nights until Harv AA4HF gets back on the air as he is under the weather and he does not know for how long. Two active Net Controls can not and should not have to run the Net twice a week. Anyone interested can contact me Dave KJ8V or Frosty W0FP to volunteer. This would be a great opportunity to get your feet wet and become either a back up or full time Net Control. It is fun and you can’t hardly screw up. Frosty and I are on most nights and can help you through any rough spots

Also the Net needs a full time Net Control Coordinator as I am the acting NCC and I really don’t have the time to do this, be a full time Net Control and the Awards Manager. This position helps the Net Control stations in their duties, lines up Net Controls for each season.

REMEMBER THE NET CANNOT OPERATE WITHOUT STATIONS VOLUNTEERING TO HELP OUT.

Anyone interested in these positions can contact Frosty W0FP or Dave KJ8V.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give for the NET.
