Wed. 144.240, Mon. 144.252 and Tues. 222 Reports

3:30pm Friday

Here are this week’s net reports.

Both WB9LYH and K8TQK had over 20 check-ins this week.  Nice turnout.  Hope many of you tried to create some activity of your own, down the band, after net control had passed you by.   A few dozen guys saying hello to net control is nice, but for a truly healthy 2m band, we could use many CQ’ers, in different grids.  If we had enough CQ’ing any night of the week, we wouldn’t need nets to increase activity levels.

On Wed. night, WB9LYH called the 144.240 net @8pm central from EN54cl.  Mark said propagation was up and down, sometimes very strong.
Mark’s 23 check-ins were:  N9OLT EN64;  N8WNA EN82;  K9LQZ/M from the EAA in EN53;  K8GDT EN91;  N9YK EN71;  N9JBW and K9CCL EN61;  N9NDP EN62;  W9EWZ, N9GUU and KC9CLM EN52;  WA9BNZ and W9BBP EN40;  WB0YWW, KG0SJ and WB0YNA EN22;  AC0RA and W5FH EN41;  KC0CF EN32;  W0HXL EN21;  N0IRS EM29 and K0NY EN44.  Also had KG0LD in EN10 relayed in via W0HXL.
That has to be the most IA/NE check-ins we’ve ever had.  Plus N0IRS in KC metro.  Very good numbers to the southwest.
Want to acknowledge some new calls  — welcome to N9GUU, W5FH and KG0LD.  Thanks for stopping by.  It’s very gratifying to still find newcomers after 5 years of Wed. nets.

On Monday night, K8TQK called the 144.252 net @8:30pm eastern from EM89je.  I counted 25 check-ins, when I reviewed Bob’s list via the chat archives.   What a night!  The 25 check-ins were:  N8WNA EN82;  KC8YJB, NF8O, KD8FHY, KD8JQ and K8GDT EN91;  K9MRI EN70;  VE3VII FN03;  K8ZES FN02;  WD8CHR EN90;  W2UAD FN13;  W2KV FN20;  AC3L/M FN00;  WA4NJP EM84;  KA2KQM EM74;  N1GC EM95;  WD4NMV EM85;  WA4REE EM65;  KI4ROF EM55;  KY4MRG EM77;  WB8ART and KB9RDS EM79;  W9EWZ and KC9CLM EN52 and WB9LYH EN54.   Great activity from all directions.

On Tuesday night, K8TQK also posted who he worked in conjunction with 222 Tuesday:  VE3CRU FN04;  N8WNA EN82;  WB4IXU EM86;  WB8AUK EN80;  K9MRI EN70;  KD8CKF EN81;  WA8RJF and K8GDT EN91.
222 Tuesday is the national activity night for the 1.25m band.   Get on/near 222.100, call CQ, look around, start something.  Best time to do this is from about 0000-0200.
