WB9LYH EN54 and K9LQZ EM68 *ON* 144.240 Long-Range Net Wed. Night. — Scroll Down to May 27th Posts if you Want ARRL June VHF Contest Info

   2:30pm Monday

   Got good news today from K9LQZ in EM68, a half hour northwest of Louisville.  K9LQZ has completed his station improvements and will be ON Wed. night.  Specifically, Lowell will be on 144.240 from 0120-0140, looking to his E, SE, S, SW and W.  He will be looking those directions to try and expand our net activity to areas we can’t normally reach from WI.  
   If you draw a 300-500 mile semicircle to the east, south and west from EM68xn, we’re talking about W VA, western portions of PA, MD, VA, NC and SC.  All of KY, TN.  Downstate IN, IL and OH.  Northern parts of GA, AL and MS.  Much of AR and MO.   Those are the areas K9LQZ can reach on Wed. nights and we want VHF’ers in those areas to get on the air and give Lowell a signal report on his improved station.  If you are outside those areas and we have a night with enhanced conditions, by all means, jump on in and say hello.  We love DX surprises. 
   Please help us spread the word that K9LQZ in far south-central IN is part of the 144.240 net on Wed. nights.   We started these Wed. nets in June of 2008, and we’ve always looked to find signals in every direction.   What we all need is greater awareness of our on-air options.   That happens when VHF’ers take an active role in “spreading the word.” 

   Unless this is your first or second visit to kc9bqa.com, you know the drill with our mainstay net control — WB9LYH.  Mark is located in EN54cl, middle of WI.  Big signal and loves DX, so even if you’re 400, 500, 600 miles away, give a listen and see if you can work him.  Of course, we appreciate our local and regular check-ins as well.  🙂  
   WB9LYH gets on 144.240 at 0100Z, or 8pm central/9pm eastern.  His antenna pattern is to start out NE, then E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and N over the next hour or so. 

   You can also plan on WB9LYH and K9LQZ for June 12th. 
   On June 19th, I will call the net and K9LQZ will be OFF, as he has another obligation the 3rd Wed. of each month. 
   On June 26th, I imagine both WB9LYH and K9LQZ will be back ON.
