Tonto Amateur Radio Association
A little history about how the “Trivia Net” first got started. During the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. I was a member of the East County Repeater Association – E.C.R.A., based in Lakeside, California*. Our group was having on line meetings once a month and members were definitely getting bored and restless with nothing going on, other than sitting around the house. Me, being a trivia enthusiast thought “we need to do something to get those old brain cells moving.”
So, I called and spoke to Dan Rebbetoy, KD6DCF our groups president. I explained what my thoughts were. He said, “sounds like a good idea to me. Let me run it by a few board members and I will get back to you.” A few days later, Dan called me back and said: “Go for it.”
That started a weekly ten question trivia net on 147.765 – 79.7 Rattlesnake Pk. on Thursday nights at 1930. A few months later another Ham, by the name of Kari Haughton, KI6TRR called me and said, “do you want some help?” Kari, was a retired DJ from an FM-radio station, KAT-Country Radio (KATJ-FM 100.7) from Victorville, CA. She had worked a morning radio show with a co-host, Jimmer. Called the “Jimmer & Karilynn Show,” for ten years. One of the top 10 rated Country morning drive time shows in California. Also, for CBS radio, KYXY-FM in
San Diego, CA.
I was like heck yes. So, we started doing five questions each, for the week. During the net we would take turns giving questions over the air. We had a good time and our listeners enjoyed it also.
In September.2021 upon moving to Payson. I thought this group would like the Trivia Net also. That’s how it all began.
Sincerely – April.2023
