144.240 Net Report from Wed., Aug. 3rd

10am Monday

WB9LYH Mark was back calling the 144.240 net last Wed. night.  In his emailed net report he said, “Difficult propagation.  Lots of QSB, not many folks on the band.  Checkins were W8SOL EN71: N9RXM EN41; WB8LNG EM79: K8TQK EM89: WA9BNZ, WB0SWQ and W9BBP EN40.”

Unless I post otherwise, expect WB9LYH (EN54cl, Central WI) to call the net again this Wed., at the usual time of 8pm central/9pm eastern.  Antenna pattern from EN54 is to start out looking NE, then E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and N over the next 45-60 minutes.  Eastern time zone is always targeted first.   All licensed amateurs are welcome, please help spread the word as we love getting more signals on 2 meter SSB.

**HEADS-UP**  Wednesday night is expected to be warm and humid.  It’s late summer, which in the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes is the most favored time of year for band enhancement.  I bet signals will be strong on Wed. night.  Please help spread the word to DX stations that WB9LYH loves pushing the propagation limits on Wed. nights on 144.240.    With stacked 17B2’s and 500 watts from a ridgetop QTH, Mark’s the strongest EN54 signal.
