Tomorrow night the 144.240 net from WI will have a guest net control. N9XKH Dennis on the WI/IL border (grid square EN52il) will fill in for WB9LYH. Dennis has filled in before when Mark needs relief and we are grateful. N9XKH has a nice signal, but he doesn’t have a lot of time to play radio so when Dennis is able to call a net, he really enjoys all the check-ins he can work. Like everyone, he wants to know how well his signal is getting out.
Again, 144.240 net for tomorrow (Wed., Feb. 15th) will be called by N9XKH in EN52il, right on the WI/IL border a little SSW of Madison, WI. Regular start time of 9pm eastern/8pm central. Antenna pattern with the net is to always look into the eastern time zone first. For N9XKH in EN52, that means he’ll probably look NNE into the U.P. and northern part of Lower MI first. Then edge northeast into central MI, then east into southern WI, southern MI and VE-3, then southeast into IN and OH, then south down thru IL and into MO. Then start turning southwest into MO, KS and IA, then west into IA, NE and at the end northwest into MN and perhaps the Dakotas?? Always nice when we scare up the occasional check-in from the Dakotas.
All licensed amateurs are welcome. The net is informal and the purpose is to get more signals on 2 meter SSB. We always appreciate you spreading the word.
Regular net control WB9LYH in EN54cl (central WI, near WI Rapids) expects to call the net on Wed., Feb. 22 at the usual start time of 8pm central/9pm eastern.
