Net Reports — WB9LYH has 14 Check-ins and K8GDT 6

  8:15am Thursday

  Let’s get these net reports posted. 
  WB9LYH reported enhanced conditions to the SW, but with plenty of up and down signals.  KC was better than usual, and Topeka got into the game, which is exactly what we want.  More check-ins and more DX.   KA0KYZ and WB0YWW were also helping by relaying when signals were in a down phase. 
   Mark’s check-ins to the 144.240 net last night were:  N9OLT EN64;  K9CCL EN61;  K9JCZ EN53;  WB8AUK EN80;  K8MM EN83;  W0FAY EN42;  WA9BNZ EN40;  WB0YWW and KG0SJ EN22;  W0HXL EN21;  KD0FEI and AB0YY EM29;  WV9E EN43 and KA0KYZ EN33.  I’m fairly sure this is the first time we’ve heard from AB0YY with the .240 Wed. net and we appreciate Ronnie making the trip from Topeka.  That has to be at least a 400-425 mile path between AB0YY and WB9LYH. 
   K8GDT has been taking the 144.252 net for K8TQK the past few weeks.  Gerry has a nice signal from EN91bf, about 20 miles SSW of Cleveland.  His check-ins were:  KC8YJB EN91;  W2UAD FN13;  VE3ZV EN92;  WB8AUK EN80;  K8JA EN82 and K8MM EN83. 

   As of now, plan on the same net controls for next Wed.  As always, we’ll post the schedule here at kc9bqa.com by next Tuesday or early Wed. 
   The flagship 144.240 net is coming up on its 4th anniversary this month.   I started things up in June 2008, and was always emailing heavily right from the start.  The website didn’t happen until April 2009.  Even in 2007, I was already sending out email around contest time, trying to keep more signals on the air.   Wow, 5 years sounds like a long time.
