75 Meter Extra Class WAS Net



The new GERATOL Season is well under way. The net launched it’s Fall season this past Saturday evening, with NCS Steve, AC0SG doing the honors opening the net. We had double digit check in totals, with eleven states represented.

Frosty, W0FP Chairman, announced the launch of our new GERATOL Certificate, entitled the CALL AREA CHALLENGE ! Several of the ops on frequency, began working toward the award that evening. Check out the previous post on the website for details on this new certificate, and join in the fun chasing the QSO’s needed for this one. Also for log form information, etc on the award, check out the website file section.

Here is an example of the log form, being used by N1KL starting last Saturday.

Stop by to say hi, and renew old friendships at 0100Z on 3.668 Mhz. We’d enjoy hearing you !!


K5OH Troy G#2065 D# 340 now SK, as reported by Barry, K2MF.

Per Bob, KA9JAC who spotted Troy’s passing in QST and relayed the information to the County Hunters Net. As Barry pointed out in his note to me, there are many, many GERATOLers, who are also County Hunters.

We wish to extend our condolences to Troy’s family, friends and fellow ham operators who worked him on the net.


As we all know, our hobby has multiple awards, certificates, achievements, etc. that many operators enjoy pursuing. No doubt, chasing down a GERATOL number on 80 Meters, is one of the toughest to achieve.

However, we don’t want to miss an opportunity for you to share other Ham Radio achievements you have accomplished, so feel free to send Kevin, N1KL an email with any Ham Radio related achievements you may have recently completed. We will compile them, and periodically put a POST up on our Website to recognize your achievements.

73, Kevin N1KL
