This Week’s 144.240 and 144.252 Net Reports

   6:45am Thur.

   WB9LYH called the 144.240 net last night (Wed.) from EN54cl, central WI.   Mark reported a good net last night.  His 14 check-ins were:  KS8B EN64;  K8TQK EM89;  KD8DRH EN91;  KC9RIO, N9JBW and K9CCL EN61;  KA9DVX EN51;  WA9BNZ EN40;  W1JWS EN50;  WB9TFH EN53;  W8SOL EN71;  WB0YWW and KG0SJ EN22 and W0ANH EN47. 

   *WB9LYH EXPECTS TO CALL THE NET ON WED., AUG 13TH, USUAL SUMMER START TIME OF 8PM CENTRAL/9PM EASTERN*  Antenna pattern from EN54 Central WI is NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and N over the next 45-60 minutes.  All licensed amateurs are welcome, the net is informal and the purpose is to increase activity on 2m SSB. 
    WB9LYH enjoys pushing the propagation limits and with stacked 17B2’s and 500 watts from a ridgetop QTH, he is certainly capable.  Please help us by spreading the word to DX stations (beyond say 300-500 miles).  
    We are coming into the best time of year for widespread band openings.  Late summer and fall often have stagnant high pressure systems and conditions can become enhanced, especially from evening thru the overnight and into the morning hours.   The best openings can stick around for several days or more.  I know WI hams are already noticing distant repeaters coming in as of late last night, and with no change in sight weather-wise, the band enhancement should continue. 

    BACK on MONDAY NIGHT, K8TQK also had 14 check-ins to his 144.252 net.  K8TQK is in EM89je, south-central OH and his 144.252 net starts at 8:30pm eastern.  Bob’s antenna pattern is N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W and NW over the next 45-60 minutes.  He also has a huge signal and easily gets out 300-400+ miles to stations with horizontal yagis in the clear. 
   K8TQK’s 14 check-ins this week were:  N8WNA EN82;  WB8AUK EN80;  VA3HD FN14;  W3IP FM19;  N1GC EM95;  W0LD FM05;  WA4NJP and W4LES EM84;  WB4IXU EM86;  WB8ART and N8XA EM79;  W9CWG EN61;  WA4REE EM65 and KI4ROF EM55.
