The Radio Amateur Society of Norwich, (RASON), will again host the annual Christmas Eve Net at 8 PM on December 24.  The net is very informal and all amateurs are invited to check in and share a holiday reflection or greeting.  You might hear a station that you haven’t worked in a long time and will want to say a brief “hello” to them.  The Christmas Eve net will take place on the N1NW repeater system in Norwich, CT, on 146-730 and 449.725.  Both repeaters have a standard off-set and use a CTCSS tone of 156.7 hertz.  You can also participate through Echo-Link via node number 711268, or NA1CN-r.  A very special guest will be checking in from the North Pole so gather the hole family around the radio Christmas Eve at 8 PM.

Questions may be directed to Kevin, KA6PDG, at his email address listed on QRZ.
