144.240 Net Report for July 11, 2018

9:15am Monday

There was no 144.240 net on Independence Day.

On July 11th, last Wednesday, net control WB9LYH reported, “Some enhancement tonite.  Checkins were N9NAQ EN51;  K9CCL, N9IYV, N9KKF, N9JBW and K9ILU EN61;  W9YZU EM69;  KC9VHD EN62;  N9EM EN53;  WD9DCW and K9YR EN52;  KG9AP EM59 and WA9BNZ and WB0SWQ EN40.”
Mark also said, “There was great tropo over 3 days last weekend.  More stations on than in the last contest.  It’s been a long time.”

KC9BQA wants to add that the 144.240 net is called every Wed. at 8pm central/9pm eastern by WB9LYH, Mark, in EN54cl.  That’s central WI, near WI Rapids.   The net is informal and open to all licensed amateur radio ops.   The goal is to increase activity on 2 meter SSB.  Please help us spread the word in all directions.
From his central WI QTH, net control starts the net by looking east and then SE, S, SW, W, NW and finally N over the next 30-45 minutes.  Sometimes a busy net runs a bit long.   Patience and flexibility is always appreciated.
WB9LYH has long yagis and 500 watts from a ridgetop QTH.   Mark’s signal gets out a very long way and he enjoys pushing the propagation limits.   Again — please help spread the word in a large circle well beyond WI.

Happy to (finally!) get caught up with the net reports.  I hope we still have some readers who find this of use, despite my no longer being on the air (several years now) and my making less frequent updates to kc9bqa.com.   The 144.240 net is doing great, and that’s the main thing.  Thanks Mark!  Thanks all you VHF’ers who keep checking in!
