OAUSA Net - November 19, 2020 - Edged Implements (Knives, Axes, Hatchets, Shovels, Etc.)

ANOUNCEMENT Our net tonight was cancelled. It seems that Amateur Radio gremlins successfully attacked the IRLP node at our Keller Peak repeater and took it down. Since our speaker is located in Portland, the only way to connect everyone depended on IRLP. The good news however, is that we have resch...
