Net Reports — WB9LYH Has 17 and K9LQZ 2 Check-Ins

    8:30am Thur. 

   34F. and sheets of wind-driven drizzle this morning.  It’s April 11th.  Poor MN, they’re getting a snowstorm.  Was taking a look at some data out of Marquette, MI and get this — at the National Weather Service station there, they still have 33 inches of snow on the ground, with plenty more expected today and tomorrow.   Worst part is this pattern shows no real signs of changing.  Cold rain is due back in Sunday, and one computer model brings in another strong storm, with possible snow somewhere in MN/WI/U.P. of MI, about next Thursday.   

   OK, on to the net report. 
   As mentioned here at 4pm yesterday and in email sent to 150-200 VHF’ers in a multi-state area, WB9LYH was able to call last night’s net, after all.  Glad he had a good turnout.  Nice job everyone, with getting on and keeping the bands alive. 
   WB9LYH reported that thunderstorms to the SE limited contacts a bit in that direction.   Mark also said he informed everyone that we switch to our summer hours starting next Wed., April 17th, and he said that message was well received.  
   *AGAIN, ALL 144.240 NETS START ONE HOUR LATER, effective April 17th, into at least October.*  

    WB9LYH’s 17 check-ins were:  N9OLT EN64;  WD8LDL EN72;  N8WNA and N8AIA EN82;  W8SOL EN71;  N9JBW and KC9AZ EN61;  NT9E and KC9CLM EN52;  WA9BNZ EN40;  KG0SJ EN22;  N0WF EN21;  N8DJB EN81;  W9APE EN63;  K9UHF EN53;  K0SIX EN35 and W0ANH EN47. 

    Can’t remember if N0WF and W9APE have ever checked in before, but it’s good to hear them say hello.  Welcome to Warren and Kevin. 

    K9LQZ got on 144.240 somewhere around 8-8:10pm.  He heard from K8JA EN82 and W8SOL EN71.  I know already that K9LQZ will *NOT* be on next week.  Lowell has a conflict on the 3rd Wednesday of every month.
