WB9LYH 144.240 and K8TQK 144.250 Long-Range Nets ON Wed. Night

   Had lots of new check-ins to the nets last week.  This makes us feel good, plus we’re happy to give guys a way to hear signals at least once a week.  Thanks to everyone who is helping to spread the word. 
   This Wed. we again have WB9LYH in EN54cl (middle of WI) on 144.240 *NOW STARTING AT 7PM CENTRAL/8PM EASTERN UNTIL NEXT SPRING*.  Mark starts by looking to his northeast, and then turns clockwise a full 360 over the next 60-90 minutes. 

   K8TQK will be on with his 144.250 net at 8:30pm eastern.  This time will remain the same.  Bob is located in EM89je, far south-central OH.  He starts by looking toward his north, then goes clockwise a full 360 over the next 45-60 minutes. 

   All are welcome, and DX check-ins really perk things up.   Help us continue to spread the word.

   Please do your part to help activity on the bands at any time.  Don’t rely on net controls to throw the whole party.  We always ask 2m ops to get on/near the 144.200 call frequency and start their own activity.  On Wed. nights, or any other time. 
   I know from keeping track of these nets (and participating heavily in V/UHF contests for years) that there are literally hundreds of weak-signal-capable VHF’ers within 200-500 miles.  Yet most nights, the bands are very quiet.  If you’re near the rig, don’t fall into the pattern of “just listening”.   Call CQ, swing your beams in a wide arc, see what you can find.
