What is the Bull Net?


The Bull Net is a group of amateur radio operators (150 +) who get together during the afternoons on "The Secret Frequency" of 3928 KHz LSB. The goal is to have fun with the hobby of radio. Topics are varied, but there is generally some discussion of radio, a certain amount of bull and of course the food segment. Everyone with a valid license is welcome, so stop by and say hello.



The Bull Net started a number of years ago by Bill or "Willy" (K1APM) and "Slim" (W1POR). Slim's imaginary bull was talked about a great deal on 3928 because the bull had a lot of unusual and exciting experiences. As time went on a few more people joined in until 2004 when the Bull Net was established. Thanks guys.

Fact of the Day

First DXCC Award - W1FH


Charles, W1FH, became a Silent Key on January 21, 2006 at the age of 91. He sat at the top of the DXCC Honor Roll for decades. When the sorted facts surrounding Don Miller’s (W9WNV) irregular DX operations toward DXCC became public, Charlie withdrew from further submissions to his DXCC and in time, his entity count was surpassed by other DXers and eventually, his call was dropped from the DXCC listings due to inactivity. He continued to work DX and send for QSL cards but simply kept them stored in boxes. DXCC had changed forever for him as well as for many others at that time. Without W1FH in the game, the DX world had forever become a little smaller.











Charlie received the first postwar DXCC certificates ever issued by the ARRL in both mixed and phone in 1947. His first DXCC certificates were returned to ARRL HQ upon his passing. A brick marking W1FH DXCC #1 was set into the ARRL HQ Diamond Patio. Be sure to see it when you visit Newington. It is in the lowest right hand corner of the left side patio as you face the entrance. The first spot for DXCC #1 seems entirely appropriate.

With permission of Charlie's wife Mary and his daughter Jill, the Southern New England DX Association took his famous call for the club’s call. Doing so will retain this famous DX call within the world of DX for others to work in contests and pile-ups for years to come.

You will hear W1FH in contests and pile-ups from time to time, keeping the spirit of the gentleman from Boston alive and active on the bands.  

This gentleman and world famous Radio Amateur was a legend...He lived down the road from me in Boston, and I have his QSL card...I will always treasure it.....
