It has been an interesting spring, tosay the least, for everyone across the globe. Social distancing, everyone being sequestered in their homes, and the run on toilet paper- (sorry for the pun) have made us irritable and grouchy. The only ray of sunshine has been ensuring the health and well-being of family and friends, and speaking freely to everyone from behind our Covid-19-free microphones. Noting that the continuance of quarantine may continue into the first weeks of May, I have decided to extend our anniversary special from April 27- through May 3, 2020. We will use the special event “K1R” call on May 2 and 3, 2020 and extend a friendly hand to all check-ins during the week to be part of our 16th anniversary.
Anyone checking in with any of our stalwart Net Control Stations during the week will be able to obtain our special, 16th anniversary QSL card. All it takes is a self addressed stamped envelope, sent to Loby-WA2AXZ.
All, due to concerns about COVID-19, the Dayton Hamvention is cancelled.
Loby-WA2AXZ spoke with long-time NCS Mark-KC8SGO June 18, and Mark said his XYL, Paula, passed away Wednesday June 12. All details for the funeral and where to send condolences is on his KC8SGO page, in qrz.com. Paula was in ill health and in a nursing home for quite a while, and now is at peace.
On May 4th and 5th, join the Chew gang in celebration with special event call K1R! Pass the word along!
Happy New Year to all of the 72 Chew community! Our first newsletter for 2019 has been published, and is available on our newsletter page, or from this link.
