Wed. Eve. 144.240 Net Status Update

6:50pm (central) Wed.

Away from home, so I’ll keep this short.
Looks like widespread thunderstorms will keep K9LQZ off the air tonight.   Southern IN radar shows all kinds of storms.   Perhaps there’ll be a small break in the weather, but if you don’t hear anything out of K9LQZ tonight, now you know why.

WB9LYH EN54cl has an area of storms over him right now.  But in Mark’s case, there’s nothing behind it and he should be in the clear when the net starts in an hour.  So I’m optimistic that WB9LYH will be ON as usual.

I will be posting net reports sometime tomorrow.

We are in our 5th year of the Wed. night nets.  This all started back in late June of 2008.  The story is here:  http://kc9bqa.com/?p=5363

I don’t say this often enough, but I want to publicly thank the 100’s of check-ins thru the years, I want to thank our various net controls over time, and  especially WB9LYH.
Please continue to promote more activity on all weak-signal VHF/UHF ham bands, not just on Wed. nights, but at any time.

    Hi Eric,

    KC9BQA here. Appreciate you checking in last night and using the comment feature. Don’t hesitate to get on the ON4KST.com chat — lots of VHF’ers there following along and posting what they’re hearing.
    One drawback of trying to post real-time info to kc9bqa.com is that I have to manually approve the comments, so they can get “stale”.
