  1. Very interesting, I am a Master Mason and a member of Nelms Lodge #323 in Smyrna, GA of which I am a PM. My callsign is KK4AC (Extra Class)and would like to know how I can become a member of— Hiram’s Hams

  2. Are the nets listed, especially the 20m net, still active?


  3. I am pretty sure I heard K8DHC identify on 3865 just before 0230 UTC on Christmas Eve, but unfortunately for me, my antenna isn’t set up well to do 80m to Ohio, and between that and the yahoos yakking on 3863 and essentially QRMing 3865 for me, I’m not sure if that net ran or not. It being the holiday, I wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t, but that’s as close to a Masonic net running that I’ve heard since I was licensed in 2013.

    I just run 100W barefoot into a G5RV that’s probably close to end-on to Ohio (no other way to orient it here, unfortunately) so that may be part of the problem, too. But I can say that I’ve listened for the 20m net before and never heard it.

    Anyway, 73, S&F, and Merry Christmas to all!
