15 Check-Ins to 144.240 Net on Wed. Night

9:15am Friday
WB9LYH’s net report said, “Propagation!  Good signals especially to the east.”
Check-ins were:  VE3ZV EN92;  W8IO EN63;  N8WAC EN81;  K8TQK EM89;  WB8LNG EM79;  WA9JML EN51;  N9JBW and KD9BGY EN61;  KC9PYV EN52;  N9RXM, KC9OVD and NG9K EN41;  WB0SWQ, WA9BNZ and W9BBP EN40.  Also W1JWS tried checking in with a halo, but no luck.
Pleased to note that KC9PYV is a new all-time check-in to the net.  Welcome and glad you’re on 2 meter SSB.

I would expect WB9LYH to be on again next Wed. at the usual start time of 8pm central/9pm eastern.

I know that the following net info gets repetitive for “regulars” but I never know when we’ll have new visitors to kc9bqa.com so here goes:
The 144.240 net is called every Wed. at 8pm central/9pm eastern by WB9LYH.  Mark is in EN54cl, central WI, about an hour and a half west of Green Bay.  Mark has a pair of 17B2’s (horizontally polarized, as is the custom on the SSB/CW side of VHF/UHF) and 500 watts from a ridgetop QTH and he routinely gets out 400+ miles to other well-equipped stations.
WB9LYH appreciates all check-ins, local and DX.  He does enjoy 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 have had 100’s of unique calls to the net over the past 7+ years.  We appreciate you helping to spread the word and doing your part to make the SSB/CW portions of the VHF/UHF bands more active.
