144.240 Net Report for Aug. 19, 2015

7:15am  Sunday

WB9LYH in EN54cl had 14 check-ins to the Wed. 144.240 net (8pm central/9pm eastern start time).  Mark reported good signals, but nothing on the map.  He’s referring to the APRS VHF propagation map which is here:   http://aprs.mountainlake.k12.mn.us/

The 14 check-ins were:  KB9PSE, N9LAZ and KD9BGY EN52;  K9ILU, K9CCL, KC9RIO and N9JBW EN61;  W9NHE, N9WQ and KA9VDU EN53;  N9YK EN71;  K8TQK EM89;  W9BBP EN40 and WB0YWW EN22.

WB9LYH expects to call the net again this Wed., Aug. 26th, at the usual start time of 8pm central/9pm eastern.  Antenna pattern from EN54cl (which is central WI, near WI Rapids) is NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and N over the next 45-60 minutes.  All licensed amateurs are welcome, net is informal and the purpose is to increase activity on 2m SSB.

Net control WB9LYH also added that KC9RIO mentioned the 144.240 net on the 3.850 MHz group, thank you Bart.   Since I was never on HF, not sure who, what or when the 3.850 group is, but perhaps some of you may want to investigate.

K8TQK was not able to call his 144.252 net last Monday.  He was out of town, according to the chat transcripts at the www.on4kst.com ham chat.   I bet Bob will be on this week, lightning permitting.
