New Net Times increasing Participation

First of all let me start off by saying that 40% of people don’t believe that Statistics prove anything…

Now I will tell you that after tabulating the Net reports for the last 18 days that our net participation (Number of stations checking in) has increased by just under 27% since we switched back to 1900 hours 9 days ago.

However this does coincide with the drop we took when we switched to the 1600 start time when the band conditions started to fail earlier in the season…

We are back to where we were when we started but for the net to do its job properly we would need a greater level of participation from the Amateur Community in Ontario and especially from the local ARES Groups who along with the NTS comprise RAC Field Services in Ontario.

The later start time ( when more amateurs are home and finished supper) along with the much better band conditons in the evenings should bring a much needed increase in participation.

We can’t do it without you!!!
