WB9LYH net on 144.240 @ 0100Z Wed. night

    WB9LYH has emailed to say that he will be on with his net at 7pm central, or 0100Z Wed. night.    This is on 144.240, and WB9LYH is located in EN54cl, or right in the middle of WI.   He starts out looking east toward MI, calling CQ frequently, and slowly swinging his yagis clockwise over the next 1 to 1.5 hours.    I hope those of you unaffected by a whopper storm moving north into the Missouri Valley and Midwest will get on tomorrow night and create activity on 2 meter SSB.  

     I’m going to call my 144.250 net *OFF* tomorrow night.   Reason being a good chance of snow/freezing rain plus strong east winds.    I am thinking good thoughts, hoping that the anticipated ice doesn’t go beyond the nuisance variety.    

     I expect to be out in the shed for WB9LYH’s 144.240 net.   If I’m able to rotate my stack safely, I’ll monitor Mark and issue updates on the real-time 144/432 MHz chat at www.on4kst.com.   We had a nice turnout in that chat last week; at least 20-25 guys, and many of them went ahead and coordinated their own activity off the net frequency.   This was how KB0HH in EM06 worked WB0YWW EN22 and N0PB EM39.   That is exactly the kind of activity both WB9LYH and I are hoping to create in conjunction with these weekly nets.    We’re happy to get the party started, but when the guests actively seek each other out, it’s even more fun.  

     So the 144.240 net is ON tomorrow night.   See you then.   I will NOT be on 144.250 afterward; going to be pulling the plug due to a winter storm watch.
