MASSACHUSETTS TRAFFIC REPORT FOR DECEMBER 2016

2016 has come to a close and it has been a busy and eventful year.  We had a traffic handlers picnic on a picture perfect day, and a traffic handlers table at the New England ARRL convention in Boxboro.  The Cape and Islands 2 Meter Net was re-activated with N1SYC as Net Manager, and Heavy Hitters Traffic Net increased from three to four sessions a week, adding Sunday evening thanks to Net Manager W1HAI.  The Mass Rhode Island Phone Net celebrated it's one year anniversary under the leadership of N1LAH.  The East Mass 2 Meter Net moved to Quincy and Sharon repeaters until finally landing back home on the Boston repeater.  We lost several traffic handlers including Clyde N1BHH and Jack N1OTC who became Silent Keys, and Mike NA1XX who due to a physical condition had to discontinue his radio activities. Greg KC1CIC was officially appointed to the ARRL position of Assistant Section Traffic Manager.  K1BML was appointed a new Official Relay Station. KC1EGK and KC1ENA became new Net Control Stations.  KO4W became a new traffic handler. KC1EGK, KC1ETB and KO4W joined KC1CIC and N1IQI as digital traffic handlers
Included below is not only the December Section Traffic Report but a year end summary of all our traffic activity in 2016.  Thanks to Greg KC1CIC for compiling all the stats and thanks to all you great traffic handlers for a really good year.  73, Marcia KW1U
