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. Dave served as Net Manager until January 2018, at which point Keith, -KD8GXL took over as Net Manager.
The BRTN is over forty years old and still going strong.
Check in and help keep the tradition alive.
