9am Tuesday –
We have a pair of long-range nets tomorrow night. How much band enhancement will there be?
K8GDT continues to fill in for K8TQK. Gerry gets on 144.252 at 0030Z/8:30pm eastern from EN91bf, just south of Cleveland. He starts out calling CQ to his north, then gradually goes clockwise a full 360 over the next 45-60 mins, give or take activity levels.
WB9LYH will be on 144.240, starting at 0100Z/8pm central, from EN54cl, right in the middle of WI. Mark starts by calling CQ to his NE, then goes clockwise a full 360 over the next hour or so. WB9LYH has stacked 17B2′s and 500w from a ridgetop QTH. He’s probably the easiest EN54 you can work on 2m.
Both our net controls enjoy DX check-ins. We appreciate you spreading the word about our Wed. nets to a multi-state circle. The most enjoyable nights are where conditions are good AND we have stations from 300, 400, 500 miles or more who are pushing the propagation limits.
EDIT, EDIT — 9:45pm Wednesday –
Next Wednesday will be July 4th. As such, the nets will be OFF next Wed., July 4th.
