Let’s Tie Up Some Loose Ends Before I Take a Break

4pm Friday

This weekend is the big ARRL UHF Contest, scroll down to the July 25th post for full info.
As I mentioned in my July 20th CQ WW VHF post, I will *not* be on this weekend.   I have a dead rotor on 144/222/432, plus I will be gone this weekend.  Good luck to everyone who’s getting on.  Looks like a nice lineup of rovers.   Hope there’s some periods with enhancement.

Next contest after this weekend is the ARRL Sept. VHF on Sept. 14-15th.   http://www.arrl.org/september-vhf

I’m taking a summer vacation of sorts.  I’m going to let this blog and the weekly email reminders go for several weeks.  I’ll start posting again toward the end of August.  The nets will go on, as scheduled.   Read below…

Net reminders…  WB9LYH right now plans to be on 144.240 every Wed. in August.  If there’s a last-minute change, or a problem with lightning nearby, N9OLT in EN64 may serve as substitute net control.
K9LQZ in EM68 (southern IN) may also get on 144.240 for a little while on Wed. nights, from 0120-0140, give or take.  He will not be available on Aug. 21st, as he always has a meeting on the 3rd Wed. of the month.   K9LQZ helps us by trying to find activity in places we can’t normally reach from WI.   Read other Wed. night net announcements if you want more info on what we’re trying to accomplish with K9LQZ as our southern net control.   This post from July 24th http://kc9bqa.com/?p=7289 explains it.
