I hope you had a great summer despite all the restrictions floating around. This has certainly been a different lifestyle compared to what we were used to.
Nevertheless, it is that time of year when we start thinking of colder days and with that, we have the return of the Pot Lid Net (PLN).
Make a note on your calendar, the PLN will begin its 47th season on September 13. Once again, the PLN will operate on 3.620 Mhz at 11 o’clock (Ottawa) local time. The net is open to anyone who enjoy Morse code, every Sunday except when there is a holiday.
The PLN’s Manager, Roger (VE3XRR) is also the regular Net Control Station (NCS).
Please join the group and chat with us while at the same time, practice your Morse code at a nice slow speed (approx. 8-12 wpm).
Looking forward to your participation.
The June 2020 Rambler is now available!
It is my intention to purge all unused accounts this weekend. If you have a commenting account, and haven’t logged in for more than 6 months and aren’t on the OVMRC executive, I will be removing your account on Saturday, 13 June.
There are no major effects of this – having an account is not necessary to read the site, however you must have a registered account to write comments on articles. Article comments are not a huge thing here on the OVMRC web site. This has no impact on your membership in the OVMRC, your radio licence or anything else.
Why is this being done?
Unused/forgotten/idle accounts are a prime spot for criminals to poke at a web site, and for safety reasons, I shall remove them.
Can I prevent my account from being deleted?
Yes. Simply log in between now and Saturday morning.
Can I get my account back?
Yes. If you suddenly find you can’t login (although if you haven’t logged in for 6 months “suddenly” isn’t really the right word), hit the contact link and send me a note with your name, email, and call sign, and I will set up an account for you.
We have 30 registered users, and only 6 have ever logged in, so I believe some clean-up is in order.
I apologise if this causes anyone consternation.
