Stations Checked In: 17
Net Closed: 9:12 PM (8:30 PM start)
The net today saw 17 stations checking in, including 6 new stations, on this "Hamvention Eve" edition of the net. Lots of operators shared their plans for Xenia, from shopping wish lists to seminars they plan to attend - sounds like it's going to be a good one. For anyone headed down this weekend, motor safe and have a blast.
The net was held at 8:30 PM tonight, the second time we've tried this out. It seemed to have a good turn out, especially from our friends over in Ann Arbor (we should rename this to the Ann ArborONE DMR Net hihi) so we may have to keep this time come June. Newcomer to the net K8RWN had an excellent point that as summer pushes the daylight out, the later start time might just be the ticket - I have to agree!
Remember that next week the net will be on TUESDAY @ 7:00 PM! Next week and the following week, we'll be trying Tuesday and earlier to see what we can't reel in for check-ins. I'll be on 3126 Monday to catch anyone who may have missed the reminder, but feel free to share. Remember, this is only for the last two weeks in May - afterward we'll make the call on the best day and time.

- Just a reminder - the net next week will on TUESDAY at 7:00 PM. We will be seeing if Tuesday at an earlier time is a better slot for the net.
- After May all these changes will stop and the day and time will be finalized. Be sure to subscribe to our site, so you get emailed updates when we post information.
- Dayton is here - for anyone headed down there travel safe and may all your ham radio shopping dreams come true.
- The Arrow Bus to Hamvention still has room (as of Thursday the 9th). For more information visit W8RP.org or contact John WA8TON at 616-560-3365.
