The Burning River Traffic Net (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 (SK) took over the Net Manager position until only his health no longer allowed him to so in November of 2012. A that time, he appointed Dave, -W8DJG to be Net Manager. By a majority vote of the regular BRTN checkins, Dave has been reelected each November since.

The BRTN is over thirty years old and still going strong.

Check in and help keep the tradition alive.
