This Week’s 144.240 and 144.252 Net Reports

   3pm Thur. 

   Man is it nice to see the sun!  And not just for a few minutes in the evening, but ALL DAY!  Sorry — it’s been a gloomy stretch for days here.  More like April or early May. 

   I don’t think the 144.240 net happened last night.  WB9LYH was off and N9XKH in EN52il was filling in.  But I just replayed weather radar from last night and there were storms in N9XKH’s area at net time.  Plus I don’t have an email net report, nor was anything mentioned on the real-time ham chat.  (Talking about the IARU Region 2 Chat for 144-432 MHz) 

   Back on Monday night, K8TQK had 14 check-ins to his 144.252 net called from EM89je, south-central OH (start time is 8:30pm eastern, every Monday)  Bob’s check-ins were:  AC3L/M FN00;  KJ4ZYB FM07;  WB4IXU EM86;  W4IMD, W4LES and WA4NJP EM84;  WB7PMP EM88;  WD4NMV EM85;  N8XA and WB8ART EM79;  WA4REE EM65;  W3IP FM19;  KB8GUE EM89 and K8RYU EM99. 

   *WB9LYH SHOULD BE BACK ON WITH THE 144.240 WED. NET ON JULY 2ND.*  Start time during Daylight Savings is 8pm central/9pm eastern.  Look toward EN54cl — right in the middle of WI.   WB9LYH’s antenna pattern is NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and N over the next 45-60 minutes. 

    I owe you readers 2 things:  1)  an update on my station liquidation and 2) a full summer contest calendar.   Hopefully I can type those up tomorrow or Saturday. 
   Looks like the CQ WW VHF is up next — that’s 6m and 2m only, and it starts at 1pm central on Sat. July 19th and runs for 33 hours, until 4pm central the next day.
