Received this in my email this afternoon if anyone knows him.
"I'm not sure if anyone knows my stepdad Richard Gerber K9RAG He's from Indianapolis IN. I am not able to sign on and communicate with any of his friends and I'm not sure the frequency he goes on. I was hoping if any of you guys knew him, that you could let some of his friends know that he has been very sick since July and has passed away Dec 5th. He fought til the end and didn't give up. His heart finally just stopped. The funeral arrangements are open to family and friends and if there is anyone who knew him and maybe had photos or anything they would like to share, please let me know. He loved ham radio and was an operator for 20+ years. Thank you." ... See MoreSee Less

www.facebook.com/1648764605378090/posts/2451290225125520/For the 14th consecutive year, The 3916 Nets will be presenting The Santa Net on 3.916 MHz. Good girls and boys can talk to Santa Claus, via amateur radio, nightly at 7:15 PM (Central) starting Friday, November 29, 2019. The Santa Net will run nightly at 7:15 PM Central through Christmas Eve, December 24, 2019.
Pete Thomson (KE5GGY), of The 3916 Nets, commented on The 3916 Santa Net. He said, "Christmastime is a very special time for our nets every year. We enjoy helping young people and their families have a shared Christmas experience that they'll always remember. And we're thrilled to introduce young people to the excitement of amateur radio."
Youngsters can talk to "Santa at The North Pole" via strategically placed operators who relay the voice of Santa. Thomson said that The Santa Net is a team effort that involves the efforts of a number of 3916 Net members. He said, "In our first year, we connected 10 kids to Santa on Ham Radio and it's grown steadily since. For 2019, we're expecting between over 700 children to participate."
Prior to each night's Santa Net, pre-net check-ins can be made at www.cqsanta.com Third party rules and regulations apply.
The Santa Nets are presented annually by The 3916 Nets. The Rag Chew Crew, The Tailgaters and The Freewheelers are all amateur radio nets that meet on 3.916 MHz nightly.
