Glad I remembered to look at the Hepburn Tropo Forecast Maps for tomorrow night’s 2m nets. http://www.dxinfocentre.com/tropo.html See for yourself …
GREAT CONDITIONS ARE FORECAST for the western Midwest and Plains. The enhancement is forecast to run north into the Dakotas and Minnesota. Don’t be surprised if the enhancement reaches even further. The maps are fun to look at, but they are rarely exact. Plus we need to remember the best cure for a dead band is calling CQ, regardless of what any maps might be indicating.
PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD that both the 144.240 net (de WB9LYH EN54cl, starting at 0100Z) and the 144.230 net (de KA0KYZ EN33qw, starting at 0200Z) are looking for big nights with lots of DX possibilities. We hope we can have stations in CO, KS, NE, ND, SD, VE-4, MN, MO, IA on board tomorrow night and every Wednesday. Both looking for the nets, and calling their own CQ’s, on 144.220 and below.
Remember that K8TQK kicks things off Wed. nights at 0030. Bob’s on 144.250 from EM89je, south-central OH. His signal has 300-500 mile range, so say hello to K8TQK and get your call on this week’s net report.
I’ll keep this post short. If you’d like more info about the nets scroll down to Aug. 24th and Aug. 9th posts.
