WB9YLH Has 9 Check-Ins to the 144.240 Net

5:15pm  Thur.

WB9LYH reported spotty propagation along with some good stuff last night.  Check-ins were AC8GD EN71;  N8WNA EN82;  KG9QT, KD9BGY and N9JBW EN61;  KB9KLD EM58;  W9BBP and WA9BNZ EN40 and WB0YWW EN22.
Mark reported that KJ4ZYB in FM07 (that’s Central VA, if you’re not familiar with Maidenhead Grid Squares) was hearing a letter or two of Mark’s call on pings.
WB9LYH also reported that KB9KLD  (a little northeast of St. Louis) had an excellent signal.  Very grateful to have a regular check-in from even farther than our EN40 stalwarts.  WB9LYH is always looking for more signals from MO and downstate IL.  Indiana, too.

The 144.240 net is called every Wed. night at 8pm central/9pm eastern.  Net control WB9LYH is in EN54cl, near WI Rapids, WI, right in the middle of WI.  Mark’s antenna pattern is to start out looking NE, then E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and N over the next 45-60 minutes.  Eastern time zone is always targeted first.
All licensed amateurs are welcome.  The net is informal and the goal is to promote activity on 2m SSB.
WB9LYH expects to be around on Wed., March 11th and beyond.  As always, if Mark has a conflict pop up, I will announce it here.

The 144.252 Monday net (start time 8:30pm eastern) called by K8TQK in EM89je, south-central OH was off again this week.  His rotors have been frozen for some weeks now.  Check the ON4KST.com chat page (specifically the IARU Region 2 Chat for 144-432 MHz) on Monday nights to see when the weather allows Bob’s helpers to make repairs.
