KC9BQA Is 144.240 Net Control Tonight @8pm Central/9pm Eastern

  5:30am Wed. 

  As mentioned in the middle of the post below, I will call the 144.240 net tonight from EN63ao, 40 miles north of Milwaukee.    My antenna pattern is to start by looking N, then I’m soon looking NE, E, SE into MI, VE-3, OH and IN.   Then I start looking S into Milwaukee/Chicago by about 8:15-8:30 (central), and I then edge SW and W into outstate IL, MO, IA, and W WI by about 8:25-8:45.  Finish up by looking NW and NNW about 8:45-9:00pm.  If a net is a busy one, sometimes I’m a few minutes late. 
   Our nets are friendly and informal.  The purpose is to increase activity on the SSB side of 2m.  All licensed amateurs are welcome and if conditions allow, DX is always welcome.  

    K9LQZ in EM68 is NOT available tonight.  Lowell always has another committment on the 3rd Wed. of every month. 

    Expect WB9LYH and K9LQZ back on 144.240 next Wed.  Warmth and humidity is expected to increase over much of the central US by this weekend and into next week.  I’m hoping this will start the tropo season and we’ll reap the benefits of trying to cover a 15-25 state area with our pair of net controls.
