The BRTN was
started in the mid to late 70's by Will Wilson, WA8HED (SK) and
others. Records indicate that Will was the Net Manager from
1979 until 1997. In 1997 both Will and Ron West N8OD,
formerly N8RBE shared the Net Manager role. In December of 1997 Lew
Parsons, N8IXF took over the Net Manager postion until only his health
no longer allowed him to in November of 2012.

We would love to have you become a part of the net as well,
