We welcome John Perkins K2VTT as the new Assistant Net Manager for OCTEN. John comes highly recommended and is a dedicated traffic handler. John has some big shoes to fill, but we know he is up to the task.
This comes after former Assistant Net Manager, Dick KA2JFU resigned, citing personal reasons. Dick will be missed on the net and we wish him the best of luck going forward. Dick served OCTEN for many years and took on the role of Assistant Net Manager upon the resignation of Jack KA2ZNZ amid health concerns in March of 2021. Dick has always been an excellent example of a traffic handler and will be missed by the net. We hope that he will return to the net, when able, to share his knowledge with the new generation of traffic handlers.
