From the net manager, Jeff K2JMA:
Traffic: I would like to see the NYSPTEN traffic net grow, but as a lot of us know the internet and cell phones seem to have taken over. I personally would like to see an increase in the amount of traffic we carry. What about picking up traffic from the digital modes as an example. Another thing we can do as a net is send a Radiogram to our Amateur Radio friends on our roster or others you know. What about the holidays? Again, we can send a radiogram in place of that text or email. To our new fellow radio amateurs lets send them a greeting inviting them to the NYSPTEN net and our congratulations on passing their test.
Membership: Recruitment is key and how can we increase our membership? Passing out flyers is one idea. If you are selling at a hamfest pass out a flyer to everyone and if time available, talk up the NYSPTEN. Let's get the word out. Send radiograms to the new General and Extras in your area. While visiting other nets or clubs, ask to give a QNC advertising the NYSPTEN and asking them to spread the word. Word of mouth works very well.
Questions or queries? Contact Jeff ([email protected]) or check in with the net any evening 3.925 KHZ at 6 PM Eastern time.
