Since Mark and I are unable to take the nets Wed. 2/24, we’ve put out a call for anyone, anywhere who wants to create their own activity. I’d choose 144.240 at 0100Z first, because that net has clearly had consistent numbers from a wide area. Most folks by now are tuned into that freq. starting at 0100Z in the east, 0130 or so to the south, and 0140-0200 to the west and north. Problem is, nobody’s contacted me to say they’re willing to help, so I guess you’re on your own.
Main thing is it’s a waste to have 15-30 guys tune into a dead frequency, nobody says anything, and then nothing happens. I wish when the nets have to be off that a bunch of guys would just open up, contest-style, and see who all is around. If Detroit/Cleveland, plus that good Indy area, plus St. Louis/KC, plus Omaha/Lincoln all got on and CQ’d, looking around, you’d have one heck of a night on 2m SSB. Of course, I’d hope the closer-to-home-guys – talking WI/ILL/IA/MN – would participate, too.
Get in the www.on4kst.com 144/432 chat room Wed. night and someone do something. Have fun, make noise, swing beams around and call CQ on 144.240. QSY up/down if you have to, once contact is established.
