This Week’s 144.240 and 144.252 Net Reports

   Noon Thursday

   2 meters had excitement last night.  Reading thru the chat archives at ON4KST.com I see that there was some sporadic E skip from roughly the mid-Atlantic to IA last night.  I imagine there are readers here who don’t even know Es is possible on 2 meters, (it happens all the time on 50 MHz in summer) and that reminds me to find something older I typed up and rebroadcast it here — soon.   Maybe as soon as later today.  Check back later, if you want to know more about sporadic Es on 144 MHz.  

   Here are the net reports:
   Last night, WB9LYH had 8 check-ins to the 144.240 net called from EN54cl, Central WI.  (Start time is 8pm central/9pm eastern):  K6VWE EN73;  KD8PA EN72;  W8SOL EN71;  WA9BNZ EN40;  W1JWS EN50;  KC9OVD EN41;  KG0SJ and W0WOI EN22 and KM0T EN13.  K6VWE is another new check-in to the net — welcome. 
   Mark reported that there was lots of noise, and also some bits of conversation from unknown sources at times.  That sounds like it might have been the Es trying to bubble up.   WB9LYH”s computer was down last night, so he couldn’t see the ON4KST.com chat page, which was alive with reports of E skip.  

   *WB9LYH says that as of now, his schedule looks good for the next 4 weeks.  Expect the 144.240 long-range net from WI to be on every Wed. at 8pm central/9pm eastern*

   
     Back on Monday night, K8TQK had 20 check-ins to his 144.252 net, called at 8:30pm eastern from EM89je, south-central OH.
