Last Night’s Net Reports — K8TQK Has 18; WB9LYH 23 and KA0KYZ 14 Check-ins.

7am central Thursday —

Before we get to the net reports, PLEASE REMEMBER TWO OTHER THINGS:
1)  CQ WW VHF Contest — 6m and 2m — is THIS WEEKEND.  Scroll down a few posts for full info. 
2)  W9FZ/R will be ACTIVATING WIVUCH COUNTIES IN FAR N WI FRIDAY NIGHT.    

Sorry for the caps, now on to the net reports. 
K8TQK tied into some DX last night.  Worked the FN, FM, EM and EN fields.  His highlights last night would have to be a pair of contacts in the 650 mile range, with WB0YWW EN22 and K0SIX EN35.  
K8TQK’s 18 check-ins were:  W8JAT and WB8TDA EN70;  WB8AUK EN80;  KB8NOD EM79;  KC8YCO and W8WG EM89;  KC8ZJL EN71;  W2AUD FN13;  W8AC EN91;  AC3L FN00;  W3BFC FM18;  W2KV FN20;  KI4ROF EM55;  WB0YWW EN22;  NT9E EN52;  KR8T and W8CJS EN72 and just after his net, Bob worked K0SIX an hour north of Minneapolis/St. Paul, EN35.   The contact to EN22 was 622 miles and to EN35 687 miles. 

WB9LYH said his conditions to the east were not great, but to the west, it was good.  Mark worked:  WB0YWW, KG0SJ and KD0BQK EN22;  N9OLT EN64;  W8AC EN91;  KC8ZJL EN71;  KI8UM EN63;  KR8T EN72; N9NDP and KC9UJY EN62;  N9JBW, K9CCL and KC9AZ EN61;  NT9E EN52;  W9QF EN53;  KA9DVX EN51;  WA9BNZ EN40;  KD0FEI EM29;  W0HXL EN21;  N0WJY EN10;  WV9E EN43;  KA0KYZ EN33 and W0ANH northeast of Duluth, MN in EN47. 

Turns out KA0KYZ was home last night at net time.  He got on 144.230 at his usual time of 0200Z/9pm central and heard from:  KR8T EN72;  WB0YWW, KG0SJ and KD0BQK EN22;  WV9E EN43;  KB9WZJ EM69;  KB0UCO EN33;  W0HXL and W0FLS EN21;  N0WJY EN10;  KC0YBM EN35;  WB0ULX EN04, eastern SD;  KC0YBM and K0SIX EN35.   Great to see a net with many IA, NE and SD station.  I think W0FLS is a new call to the net list — welcome — and enjoy the activity.
KA0KYZ said that he, KB9WZJ and K8TQK were ragchewing until 0400Z, at least.  I imagine conditions just kept getting better.  On V/UHF, it often pays to be a night owl.  Or an early bird.
