Traffic Handling Tutorial

On Saturday, April 28 th the MDC Section Traffic Manager, W3YVQ conducted a training session on the National Traffic System (NTS) traffic handling.

The session is highly informative in regard to traffic handling and proper voicing of voice messages. I highly recommend everyone interested in ARES/RACES operation to listen to this training.

Silent Key

This comes a bit late, but for those of us who remember him, Bruce Francis K3JLG became a silent key November 15, 2018.  His obituary is posted at: https://www.bowersoxfuneralhomes.com/obituary/Bruce-W.H.-Francis-Jr./Waynesboro-PA/1822885  


Bruce was very active in the local community and was usually heard on local repeaters, often while operating "bicycle mobile".
