WB9LYH Calls 144.240 Long-Range Net Tonight — 7pm Central

   7:15am Wed.  

   WB9LYH in EN54cl, middle of WI, will call the 144.240 net from WI tonight at 7pm central/8pm eastern.  Antenna pattern is NE, then E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and back to N at the end.  Usually takes about an hour to call the net, give or take the number of check-ins.  You can follow along using the ON4KST.com real-time ham chat.  Talking about the IARU Region 2 Chat for 144-432 MHz. 

   *THOSE OF YOU FAR SOUTH OF WI — GET READY TO PLAY RADIO ON WED. NIGHTS.**
   We have a couple of potential net helpers in EM68 and EM48 that would greatly expand our coverage into states we can’t regularly reach from WI, such as KS/MO/OK/AR/KY/TN/AL/MS/GA, along with portions of downstate IL and IN.  This will be a work in progress for a week or two, but what I’m asking you to do is start spreading the word that the 144.240 Wednesday net is going to get bigger and better. 
   When the warmer weather and occasional tropo openings start happening, we should be able to pick up check-ins from at least 15-20 states.  Of course, we can only do that if stations are on the air.  So stay tuned to kc9bqa.com, to the ON4KST.com chat, and let your VHF friends in the states listed above know that we’re looking for them.
