WB9LYH EN54 and K9LQZ EM68 Call 144.240 Nets Tonight

   7:30am Wed.  
  As mentioned in the middle of the July 18th post, both WB9LYH EN54 and K9LQZ EM68 should be ON tonight, trying to drum up 2m SSB activity in a very wide part of the Midwest/Great Lakes/Ohio Valley and Mid-South. 

  This is our 5th year of Wed. night nets and as always, we’re trying to expand the activity farther.  

  WB9LYH EN54cl (central WI) is the flagship net control.  Mark gets on at 8pm central/9pm eastern (antenna pattern is NE, then E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and N).   With stacked 17B2’s and 500 watts from a ridgetop QTH, WB9LYH can get out 400+ miles to decent stations with flat bands. 
   Tonight, we should also have K9LQZ EM68 (southern IN) on 144.240 from roughly 0120-0140.  Lowell’s been helping us expand the activity to areas we can’t normally reach from WI.   He looks east, then SE, S, SW and W during the time he’s on.   This covers W VA, western parts of VA, NC, SC.  All of KY and TN plus northern parts of GA, AL and MS.  Also southern parts of  OH, IN and IL, in addition to much of MO and parts of AR.   Please help us spread the word in those areas.   What we’re looking for (in a perfect world) is the occasional night where the band is open and dozens of stations are on from multiple grids and states.  Then folks can slide down the band, work each other and anyone else who is on 144 MHz.
