2014 Geratol Season Heats Up!

Greetings all……..As the days grow even shorter, and the nights colder, the activity is picking up on the GERATOL net !!!

Thanks to a great combination of old-timers stopping by to say hello, and a great crop of new folks working toward their basic award, the nights on 3.668 Mhz starting at 0100Z are definitely heating up !!

We even had a few of the basic folks work the elusive Alaska this past week…..

This Saturday evening 1st shift net was exceptionally busy, with Marv, WV9O earning his pay as NCS and then some, with great work lists, and lots of check-ins !!

So if you have not yet jumped on the net this season, come on up and join us some evening……Put your state on the air for the new folks working toward their basic, and say hi to old acquaintences……we’d enjoy hearing you all !!!

Regards, Kevin N1KL Net Public Relations

Help Needed

Well guys I am putting out another request for help. Anyone that has any Award or Endorsement issued in 1972 or EARLIER please send me the ward/endorsement number and especially the date issued if you have the info. I am still working on rebuilding the Awards database. I got great response last season and I really appreciate it as it filled in a lot of blanks. Send any info you have to and I will get put in the database.
Thanks in advance.
