Last night, 144.240 net control WB9LYH reported, “Good propagation and lots of stations”. I’d say! 23 check-ins were: W8SOL and N9YK EN71; W9EWZ EN52; KC9RAP EN63; WB8AHT EN72; WA9JML EN51; KG9QT, K9CCL, KC9RIO, N9JBW, K9ILU, KD9BGY, N9IYV and KC9AZ EN61; WB9TFH EN53; KB9MIV EM59, about an hour NE of St. Louis; WB0SWQ, WA9BNZ and W9BBP EN40; N9RXM EN41; W1JWS EN50; K0DPL EN42 and AB9QH EN62.
While we get good numbers from greater Chicagoland, I’m pretty sure we’ve never had 8 check-ins from EN61. Nice turnout and thanks for the support.
Please remember to return the favor with the Thursday night Q5 net on 144.220. Net control is N9JBW John, south side of Chicago, EN61. Good signal and lots of check-ins to this friendly, active net. Start time is 6:30pm central for earlybirds and regular start time is 7pm.
** WB9LYH WILL BE OFF NEXT WED. NIGHT FOR THE THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY** Please help spread the word, not everyone visits the website. And by all means, if someone wants to make some noise and have a roundtable, go right ahead.
THE 144.240 NET WILL RETURN on Wed., Nov. 23rd, at the usual start time of 8pm central/9pm eastern. Net control WB9LYH is located in EN54cl, central WI, near WI Rapids. Mark has a big signal and is always looking to push the propagation limits. We welcome all licensed amateurs, DX, semi-local or nearby. From central WI, net control WB9LYH first points his yagis to the NE, then E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and N at the end. Eastern time zone is always looked at first.
The net is informal and the purpose is to increase activity on 2 meter SSB. We appreciate you helping spread the word — about this net or any of the other ones we’ve been publicizing. And we always encourage VHF’ers to do their own CQ’ing, to help keep the bands alive at any time.
IF you haven’t visited kc9bqa.com in a while, I’ve gotten busy lately. Made many different posts on Nov. 10th. Some of those posts have slid off the front page so use the “older entries” tag at the bottom left if you want to scroll thru the older headlines.
