Back to early spring here. It’s 46F this morning, with a good north wind. We’ve had 1.2″ of rain since yesterday morning, with another batch moving in.
Not surprising that WB9LYH reported tough conditions last night with the 144.240 net from WI. Mark also reported some rapid flutter that he had never heard before. Despite this, there was a nice gathering of 13 check-ins — W8SOL EN71; N9JBW EN61; KB9YSL (which looks like a busted call, grid unknown); WA9BNZ EN40; W9BBP via relay from WA9BNZ; KC9CLM and N9NMS EN52; WB9TFH EN53; WB0YWW and KG0SJ EN22; KG1X EN42; K0SIX EN35 and W0ANH EN47.
On Monday night, K8TQK in EM89 reported 14 check-ins with his 144.252 net at 8:30pm eastern time: W8SOL and KC8ZJL EN71; K8JA EN82; VA3VEC FN14; VA3VW EN93; W2UAD FN13; WD8CHR EN90; WB8ART EM79; KY4MRG EM77; KC9CLM EN52; WB4IXU EM86; N8XA/M and WB8CJW EN80 and KD8JQ EN91.
222 Tuesday activity that I saw reported to either the ON4KST.com chat (use the IARU Region 2 Chat for 144-432 MHz) or the 220 Prop Logger was: K8TQK EM89 working N8AIA and K8JA EN82; WA4NJP EM84 and K8GDT EN91. Plus WA4NJP worked N4QH, also EM84.
222 Tuesday is the national activity night, from about 0000-0200Z. No net control, or single area of focus. Get on/near 222.100 and call CQ, spin the beams, see who all is out there.
*Thursday Night Activity*
If you look two posts below this one, dated May 16th, you will see a link to known activity on Thursday nights. I also want to add the following option: WB9TFH reports that N4PZ is now calling 432.100 activity on Thursday nights, in addition to his regular Monday gig. Both the Monday and Thursday 432.100 activity are at 8pm central and N4PZ is located in EN52gb, a little bit SW of Rockford, IL, in the far north-central part of IL.
