WB9LYH Has 14 Check-Ins to the 144.240 Net

11:45am Thur.

As WB9LYH put it in his email to me, “From Detroit to St. Louis to KC to Sioux Falls — not bad for this weather”.   I’d agree, considering it was -9F at Mark’s QTH (EN54cl, central WI) at net time.
WB9LYH’s check-ins last night were:  KD9BGY EN61;  N8WNA EN82;  KF8MY EN84;  N9RXM, KC9OVD and KD0JNQ EN41;  WA9BNZ and W9BBP EN40;  KB9KLD EM58;  KA9DVX EN51;  N9XKH EN52;  WB0YWW and KG0SJ EN22 and N0IRS EM29.
KD0JNQ is a new all-time check-in to the Wednesday 144.240 net.   Welcome.

The 144.240 net is on every Wed. at 8pm central/9pm eastern.  WB9LYH in EN54cl, Central WI near WI Rapids is net control.  Mark has stacked 17B2’s and 500 watts from a ridgetop QTH.   All licensed amateurs are welcome.  The net is informal and the purpose is to increase activity on 2m SSB.  We appreciate you spreading the word to any hams with 144 MHz SSB capability.
WB9LYH’s antenna pattern from Central WI is NE, then E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and N over the next 45-60 minutes.  Mark also loves pushing propagation limits so help us get the word out to VHF’ers in that 400, 500, 600-mile range.

Mark says his schedule looks good and he expects to be on regularly into March.  If a conflict ever pops up, I will announce it here at kc9bqa.com.

As for the 144.252 net called by K8TQK every Monday at 8:30pm eastern, Bob has had rotor troubles for several weeks, due to the extreme cold.  When the weather eases he will be back on.

**THERE ARE MANY NET OPTIONS, all 7 nights of the week, on multiple bands**
