We had another fun activity night on Wednesday the 29th with about 14 members trying out 10m AM.   The signals were not too strong but the majority of the participants were able to copy all but two or three stations.   Aaron, W6CK reported that this simplex mode gave him the best coverage of the county so far.  The Icom IC-7300 stations with stock microphones had good audio.  The net ran about an hour and a few continued to chat after the conclusion of the net.

Thanks to everyone who able to participate.  The next activity night is already in planing.
