A little history

According to Chuck WB2ULV, The NECBN was started in 1972/73 by a woman named Jean Kittenden. Her callsign was WA2BGE. Back then members of good standing were given certificates. Chuck was a charter member with a #116. Some net managers were WA1OAM Clark Scammon, W1NUT Phil, and W1ALE Ted Edward. Around 2005/06 WB2ULV Chuck became net manager where he remained until ???? when K2QNU Jay became the current net manager. According to K2QNU, Ted liked to transpose the letters of the QTH of different check-ins. For example K1WTX’s QTH would be Renrut, sounding like something from the book  Wind In the Willows.
