146.43 FM net *ON* 8:30pm tonight 8/27. Plus last night’s 144 SSB net reports

     Look forward to a nice FM net tonight.   

     Like I said, last night’s SSB nets put a smile on my face.   I love hearing about activity, DX, and guys improving their stations — looking forward to bigger and better things.  
      So here’s the specifics:

    I can think of at least 10 stations last night that raved about how great the bands were for the big opening Sunday night into Tuesday early evening (T-storms shut SE WI down by late afternoon)   I can count another 8 stations that have either improved antennas, added bands, or have plans to do both.   Very exciting stuff.

    Also propagation was very good around Lake Michigan.   Several guys were as loud as I’ve heard them.
