There is also a very large rock in outer space heading toward Earth at a high rate of speed too. NASA been watching for some time now. Therefore the Space Force is becoming. ETA. 2029 to be close enough to see with own eyes and / or hit the Earth. Man made or not, there has been signs of the times close to home since Mt Saint Helen. " It's a small World ". Ever so now a days. 73


More info on source of COVID-19?

 

Interesting article on the source of the COVID-19 virus. USA may have been part of the problem. Sure would be unsurprising if it was developed in a lab and accidentally got released from a lab in China.

Simply astounding Simplexton net last night!   Also, we now have 100 Simplextons on our groups.io mailing list; I didn't see that coming five years ago!!

If you were there, you noticed the change in format to the "lightning round" of check-ins, first taking check-ins with little-to-no comment. 

That fast method of check-ins brought in 38 Simplextons on the air on 2 meters, a new record for a MJSS Net!!  Congrats!!
                                                              See/Hear the net here.
We trudged on to the 2m USB net on 144.240 and drug in another 12 check-ins!!  Kudos again!

The answer for Hams to the problem of social distancing, isolation in your home, anxiety about getting the virus infection is: GET ON THE AIR and talk with other Hams, whether local or internationally. Find a new friend, as there are lots of like-minded folks out there, as the whole World is going through this isolation issue.

Keep up the good "work" in Amateur Radio!
