WB9LYH Net Report from Wednesday

   9am Friday

   Glad to see everything still up on the tower this morning.  We had multiple wind gusts to 40 mph overnight with a high of 48 mph.  The actual forecast was for gusts to 55, though, so I guess we got off a little easy. 

    On Wed. night WB9LYH called the 144.240 net and had 16 check-ins.  Mark reported some propagation to the east and he was glad to talk to the Cleveland area for a while.  Check-ins were:  WB8AUK and WM8I EN80;  N9YK EN71;  WB0DGF EN63 (MI side);  N8WNA and N8AIA EN82;  K8GDT EN91;  N9NDP EN62;  KC9CLM EN52;  K9CCL EN61;  WB9SLI EN43;  W9BBP and WA9BNZ EN40;  KG0SJ and WB0YNA EN22.  Mark also reported that it sounded like KA9DVX trying to check in, but he couldn’t get the entire call before John faded out. 

    **WB9LYH plans on calling the 144.240 net again next Wed., Feb. 26th.**
     Winter start time is 7pm central/8pm eastern.  Look toward EN54cl, the middle of WI, near Wis Rapids.   All licensed hams are welcome; net is informal and the goal is to stir up more activity on 2m SSB.  We appreciate you helping to spread the word in all directions.  WB9LYH’s antenna pattern from central WI is NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and N over the next 45-60 minutes.

    I did not see any chat at www.on4kst.com from K8TQK this Monday so I’m assuming Bob’s rotor remains out of service due to this lovely winter weather that just won’t quit.   If I hear anything, I’ll pass it on.   This concerns the 144.252 net that K8TQK in EM89je calls every Monday at 8:30pm eastern.  Antenna pattern from south-central OH is N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W and NW.
