WB9LYH EN54 and K9LQZ EM68 ON 144.240 Net Wed. Night

   11:30am Tuesday

   Weather/lightning permitting, WB9LYH and K9LQZ will be on the air tomorrow night, as we keep improving in our 5th year of net operations.   (Here’s a link to the Wed. night net history:  http://kc9bqa.com/?p=5363 )

    You folks know the drill:  WB9LYH EN54cl (middle of WI) calls the flagship net at 8pm central/9pm eastern.  Mark has stacked 17B2’s, 500 watts and a ridgetop QTH.  Gets out a long ways and enjoys pushing the propagation limits.   If you’re DX, feel free to listen along and see if the band is open.   WB9LYH starts out looking NE into the U.P. of MI, then soon is looking E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and N over the next hour or so.   
    WB9LYH is also available via the ON4KST.com real-time VHF/UHF ham chat.  If you need more info about this valuable resource, it’s right here:  http://kc9bqa.com/?p=1072  That chat is free, no BS, and available anytime, day or night.  Nearly 4000 VHF/UHF’ers have signed up from all across the USA and Canada.  Use the IARU Region 2 Chat for 144-432 MHz.  Other chats for other bands are available (the 6m room is what got me hooked on VHF back in 2002-2003)

    K9LQZ is a half hour northwest of Louisville, KY, in far southern IN.  Lowell also has a strong signal and he’s been helping us expand to areas we can’t normally reach from WI.  K9LQZ gets on 144.240 at 9:20pm eastern on Wed. night and looks to his E, SE, S, SW and W over the next 20 minutes or so.   Areas within reach of K9LQZ on any Wed. are:  W VA, western VA and Carolinas.  All of KY and TN.  Much of GA, AL and MS.  Plenty of MO and AR, along with downstate IN, OH and IL.   **If you can help us spread the word to VHF’ers in those areas, we’d appreciate it**.

   With many areas of the Midwest having daily bouts of thunderstorms, I will make an update here later tomorrow afternoon, to keep everyone up to date with any changes.   If there’s no news, then it’s good news — the nets will be on as scheduled.
