K8TQK 144.252 Monday Net Reports For 3/10 & 3/17

    12:30pm Friday

    Had a little time this noon to check thru the ON4KST.com chat archives (if you haven’t heard of this free and no BS ham chat, click here  http://kc9bqa.com/?p=1072  for details).   Was glad to see that K8TQK’s Monday night 144.252 net is back on the air, after several weeks with rotor troubles. 
   K8TQK’s 144.252 net is on @8:30pm eastern every Monday.  His QTH is in south-central OH, grid square EM89je.  His antenna pattern is to first look North, then NE, E, SE, S, SW, W and finally NW over the next 45-60 minutes.   K8TQK has a whopping signal on all the V/UHF bands, and gets out 300-400+ miles easily.  Why do I post K8TQK’s net reports?  Because for several years we teamed up on Wed. nights and because  he has great reach, plus he’s been promoting more activity on the SSB/CW side of V/UHF for decades.   
   There are many good nets and activity periods around the Midwest/Great Lakes and you can read all about them at posts dated Oct. 13, 15, and 17, 2013 at kc9bqa.com.  All 7 nights of the week are covered in those posts.  You are free to spread that info everywhere.   Get on the air and say hello.  There’s way more activity on 50, 144, 222 and 432 MHz, but it definitely helps to know when and where to find it.
