Section Traffic Manager Scott Walker (N3SW) is leaving our region. He has handed his managerial duties over to me.
Monthly, the traffic manager submits reports to the ARRL, regarding public service honor roll, and net activities.
Another responsibility of the traffic manager is to “insure that all traffic nets within the section are properly and adequately staffed.” [ARRL] Currently, both the Eastern Pennsylvania Emergency Phone and Traffic Net (EPAEPTN), and especially the CW Pennsylvania Traffic Net (PTN) are operating with minimum staff.
We need volunteers.
Please consider checking in to one or both of these networks on a regular basis.
|EPAEPTN||17:00 Eastern||3918 kHz||Phone|
|PTN||19:00 Eastern||3585 kHz||CW|
Both nets meet daily.
Arriving traffic is delivered best by a local ham, especially the “welcome to ham radio” messages we handle often.
Both are a great way to improve your operating skills, and give back to the community.
Tom Inman, KC8T
Eastern PA Traffic Manager
Editor’s Note: Perhaps you are not quite ready to volunteer. That is okay.
You can learn a lot just by listening.
If your schedule permits you to listen to the net now and then I think you will build an understanding of how the National Traffic System operates.
Try it. You’ll like it. If not, hit the big switch or turn the big knob.
