In his emailed net report, WB9LYH reported more folks on the band last night. Might have had something to do with the contest this past weekend, might have had something to do with an Eskip opening that apparently got all the way up into 144 MHz yesterday late morning/early afternoon. I would check out the chat archives at www.on4kst.com (talking about the IARU Region 2 Chat for 144-432 MHz) if you want to read more about what happened. If you have no idea what the ON4KST.com free ham chats are all about, go here: http://kc9bqa.com/?p=1072 To access the chat archives, use the dropdown menu on the upper left. Ton of options available there.
Back to the net reports… WB9LYH had 15 check-ins last night: W8SOL and KC8ZJL EN71; K9CCL, KD9BGY and N9JBW EN61; K8TQK EM89; KD8PA EN72; N9RXM and K9FYU EN41; KA9EEM, W9BBP and WA9BNZ EN40; KC9VHD EN62; W9HQ and WV9E EN43. That’s a really nice list, with several new calls and a few old friends stopping by from EN43, La Crosse WI area.
Want to welcome KA9EEM and KC9VHD to the 144.240 Wed. net. Thanks for stopping by and glad that you’re on 2m SSB.
**Also — WB9LYH expects to be around the next few Weds. If there’s ever a time where Mark can’t make it, I mention it here at kc9bqa.com**
Back on Monday night, K8TQK had 13 check-ins to his 144.252 net. WM8I EN80; W2UAD FN13; KC4AAW EM85; WA4NJP, WD4NMV, W4VAS and W4IMD EM84; KB9RDS, WB8ART and N8XA EM79; KB8GUE EM89; N9RXM EN41 and WB9LYH EN54.
I have complete info about both the 144.240 Wed. and 144.252 Mon. nets in the post directly below this one. Plus, if you want a much more complete listing of nets and activity periods on multiple bands on different nights, visit posts dated Oct 13, 15 and 17, 2013 at kc9bqa.com. You are free to distribute this info to hams everywhere. The whole reason kc9bqa.com exists is to get more signals on the SSB/CW side of the VHF/UHF bands.
