This Week’s 144.240 and 144.252 Net Reports

5:30pm Sat.

WB9LYH in EN54cl, central WI reported a short net last Wed., due to the weather.  In the half hour that Mark could operate, he heard from WA8IPJ EN74;  K9CCL, K9ILU and N9JBW EN61; WB0YWW EN22 and N9RXM EN41.

WB9LYH expects to be ON next Wed., Nov. 18th, at the usual start time of 8pm central/9pm eastern.   Mark will be *OFF* on Wed., Nov. 25th and we wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving in advance.
With the 144.240 Wed. net, the antenna pattern from EN54cl is NE to start, then E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and N over the next 45-60 minutes or so, depending on activity levels.  All licensed amateurs are welcome.  The net is informal and the goal is to increase activity on 2m SSB.  We also appreciate you helping to spread the word.
Remember that WB9LYH runs a pair of long yagis and 500 watts from a ridgetop location.  This means he gets out a very long way.   Mark always enjoys pushing the propagation limits so help us let DX know that we’re out there on Wed. nights, looking for contacts beyond that 400-500 mile limit.  Of course, we are grateful for all check-ins, regardless of distance or signal level.

K8TQK in EM89je, south-central OH, calls another active net every Monday at 8:30pm eastern.  The antenna pattern is N to start, then NE, E, SE, S, SW, W and NW over the next 45-60 minutes.  You can follow along at the real-time ham chat.  (Specifically the IARU Region 2 Chat for 144-432 MHz)  That’s how I get Bob’s check-ins, using the chat review feature from the dropdown menu.  You do need to register to join the ham chats, but it’s free and no BS.  More info about registering for the ham chats is here:

Because K8TQK partnered with us a few years back on Wed. nights, I still include his net reports here at  ( To read about our net history, go here:
