WB9LYH said last night was really tough. The 12 check-ins were: AC8GD and W8YXT EN71; W8KX EN72; K9CCL EN61; W9YZU EM69; N8WNA EN82; W9BBP and WA9BNZ EN40; KB9KLD EM58; WB0YWW EN22; N9DG EN53 and KD9AXR EN43. Looks like KD9AXR is another all-time new check-in to our net. Welcome and thanks for getting on 2m SSB.
Mark did report hearing someone off the back of his antenna toward the end of the net, when he was looking west, but no contact was made. He thought the call sounded like WB9FBO. Try it again, next Wed., whoever you are.
Net control WB9LYH anticipates being around next Wed. as usual. The net starts at 8pm central/9pm eastern. Mark’s QTH is EN54cl, Central WI, near WI Rapids. All licensed amateurs are welcome, the net is informal; purpose is to create more activity on 2m SSB. Antenna pattern from EN54cl is NE to start, then E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and N over the next 45-60 minutes. Weak signals and DX is encouraged to give it a try. WB9LYH has stacked 17B2’s (horizontally polarized) and 500 watts from a ridgetop QTH so he truly has 300-500 mile range under flat band conditions.j
