THE TRIPLE H NET HISTORY
Over the past 37 years, the Triple
H Net has awarded over 925 Worked-All-States certificates
to radio operators in all 50 states and 17 DXCC countries. However, there are over thirty other
types of award certificates one can obtain for the various kinds of contacts made on the Net, the
majority of them capable of multiple endorsements. The first net secretary,
Irwin Mattes, WB8SSR (now a silent key), used to make each award by hand . As more award
possibilities were introduced in the middle 1980's, WB6FNI (now W7FTT) was asked to make all
extra award certificates. When WB8SSR became a silent key, then all awards were generated by
W7FTT using 'publisher' software and new ink-jet printers. The number of issued awards and
endorsements are now around 5300!
Net operates 364 days/year on a frequency of 7.190
mHz, starting at 0700 Z. The first thirty
minutes are dedicated to check-ins, with preference given to DX stations first and foremost. The
stateside check-ins are taken according to call districts that coincide with the day of the month.
On New Year's Eve, there is the annual Triple H Net QSO-Party, held exclusively for only net
members (those who have earned WAS certificates on the Triple H Net).
Net has a free and open QSL
Bureau , first operated by Bernie
WB0EYT (now a silent
key), currently operated and maintained by Roger Attwell, WN7M, of Everett, WA. Roger is also
the other official 'officer' of the Net, and maintains the Net Control Station (NCS) duty roster.
Goff, AB5BG, is the Net Proctor and Observer,
helping to maintain the well organized
Net operations and courteous manner of check-ins, along with the relay station protocol.
are a number of official Net Control Stations
(NCS's) that maintain and control the nightly
operations, even under and despite difficult band conditions. Mark Nodine, KJ6MS, and Mike
White, W4MTS, are the Net's 'senior' NCS's. Others include Bill Brown, W7QVO, Richard David,
WA1VRP, Bruce Kocher, KI0JG, Barbara Heck, KD7YOZ, and Kevin Gold, KC7ASA. W7ftt and/or
WA1VRP run the net operations Friday nights.
There are many other stations that help as 'officially designated relays'.
