Halloween is on a Wednesday so there will be no NNPG Net this week. We will be playing a special Halloween net that was originally posted in 2013. This was one of the first nets I listened to shortly after becoming involved in the group and before I had my license. I remember listening to this net and being thoroughly amused! I encourage you to listen this net. It’s an example of some out of the box things you can do to liven up a net, have some fun and put smiles on people’s faces. We will be playing this net all day long, so stop in when you have some time. Just go to our website at www.nnpg.net and click on the Tune-In button to listen or follow this link.
I am in a quiet lull right now with my radio stuff. It felt pretty busy there for a couple of months as I prepared for the final race event for the year and focused on getting my radio gear squared away after the battery bank required a complete rebuild. I am back into my regular schedule with the Prepper Net and I have a good start with the initial content for the website finished. The fall training classes were posted a couple weeks ago. I had intended to take a few of those classes but most of the classes are on Wednesday evening, the same night as the Prepper’s net. I might be able to squeeze in one Saturday class but will have to wait until the spring session for more training. The ARES SKYWARN training just got pushed back until December. I am also signed up for ICS 300 and ICS 400 in December. EmComm training is tentative for January. But for the next month, my radio posts will be quiet. That doesn’t mean I am just sitting on my laurels!
I was browsing some new videos for the Grinduro this morning and came across this gem. I’ve been curious about the course and what it is like from beginning to end. This video is from the rider’s perspective. It’s an awesome video and I loved watching every minute of this video. He passes through my station at around the 11:00 mark, so keep a watchful eye – blink and you’ll miss me! Hope you enjoy!!
Last net’s NNPG Net is now available. We talked about home fire safety and prevention as we head into the winter and holiday season. The topic introduction covered the basic safety tips and reminders, then the station check ins added their own suggestions. We got a lot of tips from the stations checking in. Even Ken had some brilliant suggestions. He was shining like a diamond last night.
