This Week’s 144.240 and 144.252 Net Reports

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

   7:45am Thursday

    Here are the net reports…
  Last night, WB9LYH reported that conditions were tough to the east because of the weather.  Mark had 8 check-ins:  N8WNA EN82;  W8SOL EN71;  K9CCL and KC9RIO EN61;  WA9BNZ EN40;  W1JWS EN50;  KF6A EN73 and WB0YWW EN22.   Looks like KF6A is a new check-in to the 144.240 net.  Welcome and thanks for getting on 2m SSB. 
   As of now, WB9LYH will call the 144.240 net again next Wed., at the usual summer start time of 8pm central/9pm eastern.  His antenna pattern from EN54cl (middle of WI) is NE, then E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and N over the next 45-60 mins.   If something changes, I will post it here next Tue. or Wed. 

      Back on Monday night, K8TQK called the 144.252 net at 8:30pm eastern, from EM89je, south-central OH.  Bob had 14 check-ins:  N8AIA and N8WNA EN82;  N8XA and WB8ART EM79;  WB7PMP EM88;  N1GC EM95;  WD4NMV EM85;  W4LES, W4TMW, WA4NJP and W4IMD EM84;  WA4REE EM65;  W3IP FM19 and K9MRI EN70.
