Last Week’s 144.240 and 144.252 Net Reports

   5:30pm Sunday

   Meant to get these reports up a few days earlier — been too nice to be inside.  

   Last Wed. WB9LYH had a very active net, one of the better ones this summer.  Talking about the 144.240 long-range net from Wisconsin, every Wed. at 8pm central/9pm eastern.  
   From EN54cl, Central WI, WB9LYH can get out 300-500 miles to stations with decent (horizontal) yagis up in the clear.  Mark’s antenna pattern is NE to start, then E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and N over the next 45-60 minutes.  All licensed hams are welcome and the net is informal.  Purpose is to increase activity on 2m SSB. 
   Always remember that WB9LYH enjoys pushing the propagation limits so DX is encouraged to listen along and give it a try.  Please help us spread the word in a multi-state region. 

   WB9LYH’s 18 check-ins to the 144.240 Wed. net were:  N8WNA EN82;  KG9QT, KC9WSS, KC9RIO and K9CCL EN61;  W8IO EN63;  W9EWZ EN52;  W8SOL and KC8ZJL EN71;  K9UHF EN53;  K0TPP EM48;  KC9OVD EN41;  W9BBP, WB0SWQ and WA9BNZ EN40;  N0IRS EM29; WB0YWW EN22 and KA8FFM EN56. 

   K8TQK’s net is called at 8:30pm eastern every Monday night, from EM89je, south-central OH.  Bob has a mammoth signal that literally gets out to 20 states and Ontario.  He regularly gets check-ins from as far as 300-500 miles away.  You are always welcome to say hello to K8TQK’s Monday net on 144.252MHz.   His antenna pattern from south-central OH is to first look N, then NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW, over the next 45-60 minutes or so. 

    The 20 check-ins last Monday were:  N8WNA EN82;  VE3CRU FN03;  WB8AUK EN80;  W2UAD FN13;  VA3HD FN14;  KB3TNZ FN11;  WA3EOQ FM09;  W3IP FM19;  WB4IXU EM86;  N4TLL EM87;  WA4NJP EM84;  AC3L/M FN00;  KI4ROF EM55;  KB8GUE EM89;  WB9LYH EN54;  W9CWG, KG9QT and KC9WSS EN61;  K9MRI EN70 and W8SOL EN71.
