WB9LYH Has 8 Check-Ins Last Night

   8am Thur

  WB9LYH reported a few strong signals last night, but that poor propagation to the east likely prevented contacts with some of the guys out there.  Mark’s 8 check-ins were:  KG9QT and K9CCL EN61;  N8AIA EN82;  W9BBP and WA9BNZ EN40;  WB9SLI EN43;  KC9GMF EN52 and WB0YWW EN22. 

   *WB9LYH expects to call the 144.240 net again next Wed., March 5, at the usual winter start time of 7pm central/8pm eastern.* 

    K8TQK remains off with his 144.252 Monday net, due to rotor problems and persistent frigid weather.  When the weather eases, Bob will have a helper get a working rotor up and running.   Judging from the extended forecasts (and just the overall firmly-entrenched pattern this winter) that may be a few weeks away.   I know K8TQK looks forward to calling his net again, as soon as he safely can. 

   There are *many* other options on Monday nights.  Just off the top of my head, I can think of activity out of EN52 on 432.100, plus 2m nets in NY, ONT, GA and OK.   Details about all the Monday activity on V/UHF  are at this post:  http://kc9bqa.com/?p=7438  

    Remember that I have posts listing V/UHF activity for all 7 nights of the week, in a wide area surrounding the Midwest and Great Lakes.  The posts you want to go thru are dated Oct. 13, 15 and 17, 2013 at kc9bqa.com.  Take a few minutes to look over those options and make sure to tell hams in your area about them.  So many guys have rigs with 50, 144 and 432 MHz.  They just need to know where and when to find some reliable signals, so they can keep their interest up.
