Website Now Has Had Over 1,000 Unique Visitors

    Very pleased to report that sometime overnight, www.kc9bqa.com had Visitor # 1,000.   
Not its 1000th visitor overall, but its 1000th unique visitor. 

    I should give away a 10′ hunk of hardline or something to commemorate the occasion! 

    Seriously, I’m very pleased that 1000+ different VHF/UHF’ers have visited the site.  Especially pleased considering that we’ve only been up and running for 8 weeks now. 

   For those who visit regularly, I hope you’re getting something valuable in return for your time.  Thanks for being regular visitors.   For those who may just be passing thru, the most important thing I can say is that VHF/UHF needs regular promotion.   You may not go to the extent I have, but you can definitely make a difference. 

   Honestly, the biggest difference I’ve been able to make is by having the weekly nets on SSB and FM simplex.   Not just having the nets, but also by promoting the heck out of them via email (and now this website).  If you find ways to reach hundreds of licensed hams, you will find a handful who have some interest in VHF.  

   If there were active SSB or FM Simplex nets on 6 or 2 meters in every corner of every state, we’d have several thousand new VHF’ers within a year, across the USA.   Even if there were just a hundred new ones in the 200-400 mile circle around WI, think of what that would do.
