We’re Meeting Again!
Idaho is currently in Phase-4 of the COVID-19 opening protocol. We will therefore be able to meet again on June 24 at 1900 in the Veterans Memorial Building, 22 W. Broadway, Meridian.
Here are the requirements for Phase-4 openings as per the official Idaho Rebounds website:
- Maintain at least six-foot physical distancing from other individuals whenever possible;
- Wash hands with soap and water for at least twenty seconds as frequently as possible or use hand sanitizer;
- Cover coughs or sneezes (into the sleeve or elbow, not hands);
- Regularly clean high-touch surfaces and not shake hands;
- Stay home if sick;
- Wear face coverings while in public, especially when six-foot distancing is not always possible (e.g., inside businesses); and
- Implement additional protocols established in the Governor’s Guidelines for Opening up Idaho
For those wishing to attend online, invitations to a Zoom meeting will be sent out to all members.
Due to the COVID-19, testing sessions at the American Legion Post have been suspended.
Our net is held every Thursday evening at 1900 (except holidays). The frequency is 146.940 for receive and 146.340 for transmit. PL is 100 Hz. All are welcome to check in. Volunteers are needed for Net Controller. It is fun and easy. Rich W7BOI will provide the script and training. Please consider stepping up so he can have a rest once in a while.
FUN & GAMES
July 6, 2019: Members of N7LGN gathered for an antenna party to install the new VHF/UHF and HF antennas in the attic of the Veterans Memorial Building. N7LGN is on the air!
— June 15, 2019 Fox Hunt hosted by N7LN was once again a success and fun for all.
Hunters were from Lt-Rt, Thom WA7JUL, Steve, W7BJX, Matt (Fox) W7LGN, Rich (Fox) W7BOI, Mike W7RWJ, and Steve W7OSG. First place was won by the team of Steve and Mike. In a tight race (not really) Thom and Mike came in second. Matt and Rich did an outstanding job of being the fox. They had us all on the run.
— On April 20, 2019 N7LGN hosted its first fox hunt of the season. Four two-man teams participated. Thom WA7JUL hosted, along with Bill N7OCV and Mike WB7RWS playing fox. The group met at the Veterans Memorial Building in Meridian for doughnuts and coffee before the hunt, and pizza afterward. It was unanimous that all had a good time and it was lots of fun. Bill N7OCV did a great job of hiding and used just about every trick in the book to fool the hunters. The winners of the Fox Trophy were the team of Steve N7BJX and Mike W7OSG. Second was the team of Rich W7BOI and Matt W7LGN, Third was Eric N1SRC and his co-pilot Bill. Fourth was Joel N0DNE and Judy NC0DNE.
