1:30pm Tues. (Edit 2:40pm Tues)
Far as I know, our 3 long-range nets are ON tomorrow night. Looks like conditions will be at least decent, possibly a bit enhanced. I just got word that K0SIX in EN35dj will pinch-hit for KA0KYZ tomorrow night with the 144.230 net that starts at 0200Z.
In conjunction with the Wed. night nets, we always encourage all hams to call CQ in various directions, down below the nets, on 144.220 and lower. The whole idea is to make 2m SSB/CW full of signals at least one night per week. (7 nights per week would be better. )
Look at it this way — when a few hams are calling CQ, that only has a small impact. But what if several dozen were on from multiple states, spread out across the band, swinging their yagis and calling CQ? Then you could truly say the band is alive. That’s the goal here, to fire up VHF’ers and get far more signals on our bands.
Wednesdays, we do our part by offering 3 long-range net controls with great signals.
K8TQK on 144.250 at 0030Z/8:30pm eastern. Bob’s in EM89je, far south-central OH. Starts out looking north, goes clockwise over the next 45-60 minutes.
WB9LYH on 144.240 at 0100Z/8pm central. Mark’s in EN54cl, smack in the middle of WI. Starts out looking northeast, goes clockwise over the next 60-90 minutes.
KA0KYZ on 144.230 at 0200Z/9pm central. Terry’s in EN33qw, far SE MN. Starts out looking ENE, goes clockwise over the next hour or so. Terry’s the night owl, and you may find activity until 0400Z or later.
*** JUST GOT WORD FROM KA0KYZ that he will be gone tomorrow night. INSTEAD, LOOK FOR K0SIX VINCE, IN EN35dj about an hour north of the Twin Cities. K0SIX is your 144.230 net control at 0200Z tomorrow night.***
