K8TQK 144.252 and WB9LYH 144.240 Nets ON Wed. Night

   8:30pm Tuesday —

   Both our Wed. long-range 2m SSB nets should be on tomorrow night.
   K8TQK is on 144.252 at 0030Z (8:30pm eastern) from EM89je, far south-central OH.
   WB9LYH is on 144.240 at 0100Z (8pm central) from EN54cl, middle of WI.
   These nets are for all licensed amateurs.  They are informal; listen along or say hello when you’re ready.  The goal is to increase activity on the SSB portions of the 2m band.   We can attract more hams to the weak-signal portions of bands like 50, 144, 222 and 432 MHz  IF.. IF… hams know where and when to actually hear some signals. 

   Both net controls start out looking north, then gradually turn their beams clockwise, calling CQ frequently.  This means they look N first, then NE, E, SE, S, SW, W and NW.   This typically takes an hour or so, depending on how active the nets are.  Both net controls enjoy DX check-ins and they are able to work 300, 400+ miles under standard conditions.   We appreciate you spreading the word in a multi-state area surrounding WI and OH.

*REMEMBER — QST ABOUT THE 144.240 NET*
1)  The 144.240 net (only the .240 net) changes start times every winter and spring.
THE 144.240 NET FROM WI WILL START AT 7PM CENTRAL UNTIL NEXT SPRING — EFFECTIVE WED., NOV 7TH.
Help us spread the word to those who might not have internet, email or know about this website.

2)  WB9LYH will call the 144.240 net next Wed., Oct 17th, as usual.
On Oct. 24th and 31st, I will call the .240 net, from an hour north of Milwaukee, grid square EN63ao.  I may be the 144.240 net control on additional nights in Nov. and Dec. — of course we’ll announce everything here just like we always do.
