Plenty of On-Air Activity on Thursdays Including New 6m Net

    9:15am Thursday — 
    I learned about the new 6m net on Thursday nights by reading the daily VHF/UHF newsletter published by KA1ZE.  Visit ka1ze.com to find the newsletter archives, plus everything you need to know about the 144.205MorningGroup, which is the best thing going on 2m SSB in the USA.  
    
    Every Thursday, there’s a  6m net called from EM38, Missouri.  It’s on 50.135 at 9pm central time.  They usually have a couple of guys looking in different directions for check-ins, so point your 6m yagi toward Central MO and see what you hear.   The net control possibilities are KD0AKF, K0WYN and WA2KBZ. 

    Every Thursday you have the long-running Q5 net out of EN61 Chicago, called by N9JBW at 7pm central, on 144.220.  
    Believe they start out looking east and then go clockwise a full 360 from there.  This is a friendly, active net and thru the years, N9JBW has always let others know they are welcome to stop by and check it out.   The Q5 net now has a website at http://n9abf.com/q5net/   Typing www.q5net.net into my web browser got me there, also.      
   There’s also a net on 144.250 out of SE OH, grid square EM89ud on Thursdays at 8pm eastern.  Your net controls are AB8XG Kenny (primary) and KD8DJE Russell (backup).* 

   If you’re within 100 miles or so of La Crosse, WI, grid square EN43, remember WV9E is in the 3rd year of his 146.460 net, at 8:30pm central time, every Thursday.  This net is on the simplex portion of the FM band.  No offsets or P/L’s.  All are welcome, and I’m sure they’d appreciate a DX-type checkin.  WV9E has been very proactive about getting more V/UHF activity in/near the La Crosse area.  Dave also has a ham website at www.wv9e.net
