Last Night’s 144.240 Net Report

7:30am Thur.

WB9LYH said that last night started with interesting conditions.  The 12 check-ins were:  WB8LNG EM79;  K9ILU, KD9BGY and K9CCL EN61;  N9RXM, NG9K, KC9OVD and KC9RJI EN41;  WB0SWQ and WA9BNZ EN40;  WB9TFH EN53 and KA8FFM EN56.

Mark also reports that he expects to be on regularly this month.
The 144.240 Wed. net is called by WB9LYH in EN54cl, Central WI, near WI Rapids.  Start time is 8pm central/9pm eastern.  The net is informal and the goal is to increase activity on 2m SSB.  All licensed amateurs are welcome.
WB9LYH has a pair of long yagis (horizontally polarized, as is the custom on the SSB/CW side of VHF/UHF bands) and 500 watts from a ridgetop QTH.  Mark gets out a long way and always loves pushing the propagation limits.   Please help us spread the word in a very wide circle surrounding the Midwest and Great Lakes.
The eastern time zone is always looked at first with the 144.240 net.  From Central WI, WB9LYH’s antenna pattern is NE to start, then E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and N over the next 45-60 minutes, depending on activity levels.

K8TQK is still off with the 144.252 Monday net called at 8:30pm eastern from EM89je, south-central OH.  Bob needs rotor repairs and he will advise when they are done.
