Take Charge
Do you ever just want to TAKE CONTROL? Here's your chance. It's easy! Just sign up to be a Net Control Operator for the NKARC 2 meter net. It's a great way to hone your operating skills and HAVE FUN. The net meets every Tuesday evening at 8:30 local time on the 145.255 MHz repeater. Various volunteers rotate net control duties so you can "take control" just once, or as often as you like. To volunteer or for more info, email K4CO@ymail.com.
