Additional Notes:

People are happy at the arrival of Fall, and the break of our run of heat and humidity. Many expressed their happiness of the return of our meeting nets. A few lamented their trouble reaching the repeater. W1DXX from Old Orchard was unable to stay in the repeater for the start of the net. A few others attempted to check-in, but were too far in the static to be copied.
