Wed. 144.240, Mon. 144.252 and 222 Tuesday Reports

   11:30am Thursday
  There were plenty of storms to deal with last night across parts of WI, MN, IA, IL, MI and IN.  I’m pleased and amazed that WB9LYH had 12 check-ins.  Nice job, guys, showing up and keeping the airwaves alive. 
   Mark’s list included:  N9OLT EN64;  KS8B EN64;  N8WNA EN82;  KC8YJB EN91 (relayed with N9OLT’s help);  K9CCL and KC9RIO EN61;  W0HXL EN21;  WB0YWW and KG0SJ EN22;  K9WKW EN43;  N0IRS EM29 and KC9CLM EN52.  
   Turns out K9LQZ wasn’t able to get on the air last night from EM68. 

   *I call the 144.240 net next Wed., June 19th.  K9LQZ will not be on as he has another obligation every 3rd Wed. of the month.  So I’m the only game in town next Wed. 
    On June 26th, expect both WB9LYH and K9LQZ to be back on at their usual times*

    222 Tuesday is the national activity night on the 222 band.  222 MHz ops are encouraged to call CQ on/near 222.100 starting around 0000Z until 0100 or 0200.  This is not a directed net and there’s no single area of focus.  Rather, create your own activity.  Again, call CQ, swing the beams around, see who all is out there. 
    One known area of activity for years now is the MI/OH region.   K8TQK EM89 is often on 222.100 starting around 0000Z, and so are K8GDT EN91 and N8WNA/K8JA/N8AIA in EN82.  
    On Tuesday, K8TQK typed in his contacts to the chat page.  They were:  VE3CRU FN04;  WB4IXU EM86;  N8AIA, K8JA and N8WNA EN82;  K8GDT EN91;  W9ZIH EN51 and VE3ZV EN92.
