K8TQK Has 17 Check-Ins and WB9LYH 13 Last Night

   6am Thursday —
   Here’s last night’s net reports. 
   K8TQK’s 17 check-ins to the 144.252 net @0030Z out of EM89je were:  N8WNA EN82;  K8MM EN83;  KC8YJB, K8GDT and KD8FHY EN91;  W3IP FM19;  W3BFC FM18;  W8WG EM89;  AA4DD and K4YA EM86;  AC3L/M FN00;  KY4MRG EM77;  WA4REE EM65;  KI4ROF EM55;  K9LQA EM68;  K9MRI EN70 and N8DJB EN81.  
   Nice to see the FM19 and FM18 stations in there.  Don’t see that often enough with the K8TQK net.  But I admit to not knowing the effect of the Appalachians on K8TQK as he looks to his NE, E or SE. 

   WB9LYH had this to report with the 144.240 net @0100Z, from EN54cl:   Better than average to the east.  Checkins were W0VB EN34;  N9OLT EN64;  N8WNA and VE3LPY EN82;  K8GDT EN91;  K9CCL, KC9RIO and N9JBW EN61;  WB9TFH EN53;  WA9BNZ EN40;  WB0YWW EN22;  K0SIX EN35 and VE3KRP EN58.  N9OLT was assisting to the east; we tried to get some idea of the relative coverage of our stations.  We got a hand with K8MM with the contact with VE3LPY.  W0VB had an incredible signal from (southern) MN with 17 db gain and 1500 watts.  I asked him to call toward the Dakotas and he heard nothing.  W0VB isn’t able to be on all the time, but I have no doubt that we could raise stations to the west if they were on, with him relaying.  Lots of fun last night. 

    Bob and Mark, thanks for taking the nets and for the reports. 

    Unless you hear otherwise, expect both K8TQK and WB9LYH to be net controls next Wed.
