Stations Checked In: 20
Net Closed: 9:12 PM
The net today saw 20 stations checking in, on this "our lawns need the rain" edition of the net. We had 2 new stations join us this evening; WD8CRQ and KZ4FOX. Welcome to the net everyone, we hope to hear you back soon and often.
Net regular Paul K8PD mentioned there was a recent update to the Anytone D868UV firmware, which had some bug fixes plus expands the digital contact list to 200k contacts. With the DMR database growing every day, this is a welcome update so that these radios can accommodate the whole list - at least for now. Thanks for the tip Paul, we appreciate it!
Great net this evening, lots of stations checking in and great conversation. Thank you to everyone who did check in - it's YOU who makes this net a worthwhile Monday evening activity.
