1)  The first QSY Net for the season, will be on May 26th.  Verne Madden, N9VAM, will be hosting this net. These Nets are used to check the performance & capability of our radio equipment with a Net Controller, as well as other Hams in and around Hendricks County. If you are interested in running a QSY net, please contact Verne Madden, N9VAM, at vamadden@sbcglobal.net.

2) The Hendricks County Health Department’s 1610KHz station is back up and running in Danville. If any Amateur Station hears the AM Station, please report time and date that you heard it to Ron Burke, KB9DJA, at kb9dja@gmail.com.

3) The Hendricks County Health Department is in the process of making QSL cards. They will send out a card to anyone who reports hearing the AM Station.
