Buds' Midnight Madness Net:
Who is Bud and why a midnight madness net at 10:30 pm? Very good questions indeed, this section intends to outline a little bit of the history of this Net. The Midnight Madness Net was introduced into the Fulton County repeater in the mid-1990s by Bud Rohda, KA8ATI, and Dave Nelson, KA8KDS. The idea was to have a fun net with a very loose format, providing local-area HAMs a forum for discussion of any number of topics. The more often HAMs checked in, the higher their call sign was in the check-in roster. The net originally started at 11:00 pm and would go well past midnight before closing down with Bud acting as net control almost all of the time. After Bud Rohda passed away in 2005, the net was continued on his name with various net control operators, first by Dave Nelson, and currently by Steve Breece, KC8ROU. As times change and schedules change, it was determined that the net was better served to start at 10:30 pm. The net now runs as a controlled net, with a regular round, followed by a 73 round. You will always find us on 147.195 at 10:30 pm, Monday through Friday, so be sure to stop in and say hi.
