The Geratol Net has started a new award for 2015, "The Veteran's Salute Award." They will try to work at least one member of each branch of the service in all of the lower48 continental US states. The net meets in the extra class portion of the 80 meter band on 3.668 mHz daily at 0100 UTC. They are requesting extra class members of the USCGARC come up on the net and make contact with them. Being the smallest branch of the military, Coast Guard extra class hams are in short supply. More information can be found on their website
