Let’s get these net reports up bright and early today.
WB9LYH was back on the 144.240 net, from EN54cl, right in the middle of WI. Stacked 17 B2′s and 500w from a ridgetop QTH. Gets out a long, long ways. Mark worked N9OLT EN64; K8GDT EN91; N8WNA EN82; KC8ZJL EN71; WB8AUK EN80; KY9E EN53; KC9CLM EN52; K9CCL EN61; WE9K EN62; WA9BNZ EN40; WB0YWW EN22; KG0SJ EN22 and K0SIX EN35.
Mark says to expect him again on 144.240 next week — his work schedule has cleared up for now. Same start time of 7pm central. Starts out looking NE, then swings clockwise a full 360 over the next hour or so.
K8TQK last night was operating on 144.252. Bob has had to slide up a little because of a new noise source that gives him a very hard time on .250. Bob’s 17 check-ins were: KF8MY EN84; N8WNA EN82; WB8AUK EN80; KC8YJB, NF8O, KD8FHY and K8GDT EN91; W8WG and KD8DJE EM89; W2UAD FN13; AC3L/M FN00; W4TMW EM84; N4PPG EM76; KY4MRG EM77; WA4REE EM65; KI4ROF EM55 and WB9LYH EN54.
Bob’s net starts at 8:30pm eastern. He starts out looking north, then swings clockwise over the next hour or so. Like WB9LYH, his signal gets out a long, long ways. Both our net controls enjoy DX check-ins, so if you’re in that 300, 400, 500+ mile range, listen their way and say hello when they peak up on you.
EDIT — 6:45am Just got email from K8TQK and Bob is going to continue operating his net on 144.252 (not 144.250). He needs to be up 2kc to get away from a new noise source that’s popped up in his area. Please help spread the word that you can find K8TQK’s net from EM89je, south-central OH, every Wed. at 8:30pm eastern on 144.252.
