15 Check-Ins to the 144.240 Net Last Night

8pm Thur.

Wed. 144.240 net control WB9LYH in EN54cl (central WI) emailed to say that last night’s net had incredible static to his east.  I believe it — there were some good storms rolling thru eastern WI and headed for Lake Michigan.
Even with the static, there was a solid turnout last night.  Thanks everyone for helping to keep 2 meter SSB active.
The 15 check-ins were:  N9JBW, K9ILU and N9IYV EN61;  KC9VHD and AB9QH EN62;  WB8LNG EM79;  N9RXM, KC9OVD, NG9K and K9FYU EN41;  WA9BNZ, W9BBP and WB0SWQ EN40;  WB9TFH EN53 and KC9RAP EN63.

Net control WB9LYH expects to be on next Wed. at the usual start time of 8pm central/9pm eastern.  If there’s ever a need for an alternate net control, we try to publicize it here at kc9bqa.com as soon as possible.  It never hurts to check this blog on Wednesday afternoons.


The 144.240 net is called every Wed. night at 8pm central/9pm eastern.  Net control WB9LYH is located in EN54cl, which is central WI, near WI Rapids or about 1.5 hours west of Green Bay, WI.  Mark has a big signal and enjoys pushing the propagation limits.  Please let VHF’ers in a very wide radius know that we’re on the air on Wed. nights.  With warm summer nights comes potential band enhancement.  Let stations in that 500-1000 mile range know about us.

From central WI, WB9LYH starts out looking NE, E and SE.  Eastern time zone is always targeted first with the 144.240 Wed. net.  From there, Mark starts edging S, then SW, W, NW and N to finish.  All licensed amateurs are welcome; the net is informal and the purpose is to increase activity on 2 meter SSB.  We always appreciate you helping to spread the word and doing  your part to make the SSB/CW portions of the VHF/UHF bands more active.
