Does the “noise’ affect the email?
Yes, noise from grandchildren affect everything! Congrats on your first grandchild.
I checked last night on the Pacific Seafarers Net, just to make sure everything was still the same. They do a warm up and check in session at 8 pm local (0300 UTC), and do the location and weather reports around 8:25 pm. There was also a net going right before, and I heard the net control at around 7:20 pm, a ham operator in El Paso. So you should have a good test of at least your receiver.
