Getting Caught Up With the Net Reports

   2pm Thursday

   Let’s get caught up, going back two weeks.

   I’ve gone to the chat archives at (talking the IARU Region 2 Chat for 144-432 MHz) and I see that K8TQK hasn’t been able to call the 144.252 net the last two weeks — Bob’s rotor is acting up.  
   Whenever he’s able to turn again, remember that K8TQK calls a very wide-range net (easy 300-400 mile circle) on Monday nights on 144.252 at 8:30pm eastern.   Look toward EM89je — south-central OH.   K8TQK’s antenna pattern is N, then NE, E,SE, S, SW, W and NW over the next 45-60 minutes.   You can always follow along at the chat, too. 

   With our Wed. night net from WI, we were also off the air on Feb. 5th. 
   Last night, WB9LYH was back at the mic and Mark had 13 check-ins.  Mark reported typical winter conditions and his list included:  N9NDP EN62;  W8BYA EN70;  W9WZJ EM69;  K9CCL, N9JBW and W9SUS EN61;  W1JWS EN50;  WB9SLI EN43;  W9BBP EN40;  WB0YWW and KG0SJ EN22 and KA0PQW EN33.  

   WB9LYH plans on calling the 144.240 net both Feb. 19th and 26th.  Start time in winter is 7pm central/8pm eastern.  Look toward EN54cl, right in the middle of WI.  Antenna pattern from Central WI is NE, then E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and N.  All licensed hams are welcome and DX is encouraged to give it a try.  WB9LYH loves pushing the propagation limits.  

    I’ll make a separate post very shortly about your options on Thursday night.
