K8TQK EM89je Calls the 144.252 Net Mondays @8:30pm Eastern

7:30am  Sunday

The 144.252 net is called every Monday (weather and equipment permitting) at 8:30pm eastern by K8TQK, Bob in EM89je, which is south-central OH, near Chillicothe.   K8TQK has a very big signal and his normal range is 400+ miles.    His antenna pattern is N to start, then NE, E, SE, S, SW, W and NW at the end.   Reason why I still post K8TQK’s net reports is at one time, Bob partnered with us on Wed. nights and we were able to cover a good chunk of the country.  (Our Wed. night net history is here:  http://kc9bqa.com/?p=5363  if you’re interested)

PLEASE ALSO REMEMBER that there’s plenty of scheduled activity on bands like 50, 144, 222 and 432 MHz.  For instance, you have the 432.110 group on 7 nights a week at 8pm central, led by N4PZ in EN52gb, a good hour west of Chicago, and joined by 15-20 stations in a multi-state area.  They use the ON4KST.com ham chat extensively, so watch what’s going on and check in when you are ready.  (Talking about the IARU Region 2 Chat for 144-432 MHz)
To see all your options, 7 nights a week, consult posts dated Oct 13, 15 and 17, 2013 at kc9bqa.com.  I discuss multiple nets and activity nights there.  Feel free to pass any of this info along to hams everywhere.  The whole reason kc9bqa.com exists is to spread the word about on-air activity on the SSB/CW portions of VHF/UHF bands like 50, 144, 222 and 432 MHz.
