On the 27th of May 2017 here in Perth, or to be more specific, the 26th of May Ontario time, Reg, VK6BQQ will be running the 800th Friday Night Technet. For years we’d heard the net at 9am or 0100UTC on VK6RFM, and more recently on VK6RLM net, on the Techlink conference, and on IRLP node 9229.

Not only is 800 a major milestone, but thanks to John, the manager at the WA RAAF Association Aviation Heritage Museum in Bull Creek, Reg will operating the ‘net on the 27th of May from inside the Lancaster bomber at the museum. This is a great opportunity to promote amateur radio, the museum – and to help Reg celebrate the 800th Technet milestone.
