    I love it when he runs the show, my daughter hears him and said I want to do that too. now she is “kinda” studying to get her technician. She is not as as bright as this young kid.

      Oh, that would be so exciting for her to get her ham license! Maybe we could get a “Youth Net” going! How old is your daughter?

          Sure! Why not? OMISS has the “Old Men’s” net… I’ve heard YL nets… There’s nets for all sorts of topics and groups. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜‰
