K8TQK EM89je Calls His 144.252 Net Every Monday

6:30am  Monday

Don’t usually make posts on Monday, but since I’m here…

K8TQK calls a very wide-range net on 144.252 MHz Mondays at 7:30pm central/8:30pm eastern.  Bob has big antennas and power from a hilltop QTH, so he gets out 300-400+ miles easily.  If there’s one consistent station you will hear on VHF/UHF from southern OH, it is K8TQK.  Remind yourself to tune in on Monday nights and listen to how the bands sound.
K8TQK (like many of us lately) has had disruptions from thunderstorms lately.  His forecast has a chance of more storms tonight.  But rest assured if Bob can safely call his net, he will.  Swing your yagi his way tonight and see what you hear.

If you’re in WI or IL, remember that K8TQK wraps up his net by looking NW.  So our time for Bob is more toward 8-8:15pm (central)  His QTH is EM89je, which is south-central OH, near Chillicothe.  He starts his net out by looking N into MI and VE-3 land, then he moves NE, E, SE, S, SW, W and NW over the next 45 minutes or so.

K8TQK posts his check-ins at the ON4KST.com real-time ham chat site.  Talking specifically the “IARU Region 2 Chat for 144-432 MHz”.  If you have no idea what this ham chat is about, go here for full details:  http://kc9bqa.com/?p=1072.  As of summer 2015, I see that over 5000 USA/VE hams have registered for this free and reliable service.

K8TQK ALSO HAS A LIVE AUDIO STREAM… More info about that is in a May 16th post at kc9bqa.com.  Here’s the specific link:  http://kc9bqa.com/?p=8262
