KC9BQA in EN63 has 144.240 Net Tonight — 0100Z

    Look toward 40 miles north of Milwaukee for the 144.240 long-range net tonight.   Please refer to this link for more details and helpful hints:   http://kc9bqa.com/?p=3073    You can ignore the part at the bottom about the T-storms because as of right now, we have no storms in our forecast for tonight.    (Thursday night is a different matter, but we’ll worry about the Thursday 146.430 FM net later)

    I realize it’s mid-summer and lots of guys have outdoor activity, family obligations, etc.   All the same, I hope we’ll find a few “helper” or relay stations that can spread the activity farther away from WI.   Doing this doesn’t obligate you long-term; both WB9LYH and I appreciate any help.    We’re basically looking for someone in MI or OH or IN to look east and southeast.   Someone in Cent ILL or MO to look south; someone in IA or W MO to look SW and W; and someone in MN to look W and NW.   Yes, we’re aiming high.   🙂  
    The idea is to make Wed. a night where it pays to be on 2m SSB, within 400-600 miles of WI.    If you can help 2m by calling a few CQ’s, show up in the on4kst.com chat (choose the IARU Region 2 chat for 144-432 MHz) and we can coordinate there.   Or email me, or tell me about it on the air.  
    The goal is that by Aug./Sept. we’ll have some nights where the area from VE3 to NY to PA to W VA to KY and TN to MO/KS/NE plus the Dakotas can have a reason to listen along to the 144.240 long-range net.    Regardless of whether we have good tropo or flat bands.   Please spread the word in those directions.   All are welcome.   If you know of someone who would like to be added to one of my email reminder lists, shoot me an email and I’ll be happy to add them.
