2022 Log for Yankee 6 Meter SSB Net

 2022 Log Yankee 6 Meter Single Sideband Net (So far) 50.272 MHz, USB (as of 11/06/16) At 9:30 am local time Sunday mornings.

NET CONTROL: KB1VXY Hopkinton, MA. Multiple stations in Framingham, Hopkinton, Millis, MA area and Southern NH (Mont Vernon) that can pick up your signal also. Operating since the 1960s. Open to all hams including technician class operators. Pre-checkins to South East about 9:20 am Mention two Silent Keys of the net: Art, K1GBX and George, N1XNK Use list based on recent check-ins, then a follow up call up. On the check in you can make a brief comment if you are in and out (i/o) otherwise I will assume you will stick around for the comment round. Check-ins. Signal reports from Hopkinton, MA by KB1VXY on 2 element moxon aimed North East, or to South East for some of the stations. ====================================================
