Wed. Net Reports — 19 Check-Ins on 144.240 and 16 on 144.250

   5am  Thursday.

   Thanks again to WB9LYH and K8TQK for running the nets and providing me with their list of check-ins.   
   Last night, WB9LYH’s 19 check-ins to the 144.240 net (7pm central, called from EN54cl — middle of WI) were:  N9OLT EN64;  K9CCL EN61;  KC8ZJL EN71;  N7MB EN50;  W9YZU EM69;  K9ALT and N9NYA EN43;  N9UDO EN53;  KA9DVX EN51;  W9BBP EN40;  K0TPP EM48;  K0DPL EN42;  WB0YWW and W0WOI EN22;  N0IRS EM29;  W0HXL EN21; N9KOR AND N9QWH EN44 and KD0PNP EN35.   
   New check-ins last night on 144.240 are K0DPL and KD0PNP.  Welcome.  It’s always great to know more and more stations are capable of getting on 2m SSB.  Hope they are getting on and calling their own CQ’s at other times.  Weak-signal VHF needs more activity, that’s for sure.   I knew that K0DPL call looked familiar and now I remember… he’s part of a Cedar Rapids, IA area group that enjoys using 223.500 MHz  FM Simplex.  I hope they are still doing that.  

   K8TQK’s 16 check-ins to the 144.250 net (7:30pm central/8:30pm eastern, from EM89je, south-central OH) were:  N8WNA EN82;  N1YAK, W8WG and WT8E EM89;  W2UAD FN13;  AC3L/M FN00;  K4XXX EM97;  KC8FOG EM88;  W4MTW EM84;  WA4REE EM65;  KI4ROF EM55;  N8RTH EM79;  W9YZU EM69;  KC8ZJL EN71; N9OLT EN64 and WB9LYH EN54. 
   I know we also get new check-ins to K8TQK’s net.  Thanks for helping to increase activity and helping us spread the word.   Just going off the top of my head, EM88 looks like a grid that’s not often heard from. 

   **  Early Thanksgiving Schedule —  
   K8TQK will be ON 144.250 next Wednesday, as usual. 
   WB9LYH will be OFF 144.240 next Wednesday.  144.240 will be quiet next Wed. 
   Everyone look toward K8TQK on 144.250 next Wednesday.**

    I will repeat this info next week.
