This Week’s 144.240 and 144.252 Net Reports

7:30pm Friday

I will be making another post after this one about activity on Sat. nights at 9:30 EST (0230 UTC) on 144.205 out of FM18.   Net control is W3BFC Ray.   As always, help spread the word.

**No 144.240 Wed. net on Nov. 25th**    Happy Thanksgiving.
Net will be back on Wed., Dec 2 at the usual start time of 8pm central/9pm eastern.

WB9LYH had 10 check-ins to the 144.240 net on Wed. night, plus a near-miss on the DX side.   Pretty good turnout on a night that had high winds in WI and I think the whole surrounding area.  Check-ins were:  WA8IPJ EN74;  KC9KPV EN53;  KB9PSE EN52;  K9CCL EN61;  WB0SWQ and WA9BNZ EN40;  KC9OVD, NG9K, N9RXM and KC9RJI EN41.  The DX was W3BFC out in FM18, Maryland.  Thanks Ray, for giving the net a try.   W3BFC reported hearing a few syllables of SSB and WB9LYH heard a few bits of CW, but not enough for a contact.  Mark said it was fun to try — remember WB9LYH enjoys pushing the propagation limits.
On a personal note, very glad to see KC9KPV checked in.  When I was still on the air and getting this whole push started back in 2008-2009, KC9KPV was a frequent check in and helped us out a few times when we needed cover.

K8TQK calls the 144.252 net every Monday at 8:30pm eastern.  Look toward EM89je, south-central OH.   This Monday, Bob had 19 check-ins:  N8WNA EN82;  WB8AUK EN80;  VE3ZV EN92;  WA3EOQ FM09;  AC3L/M FN00;  W4IMD, W4LES and WA4NJP EM84;  N4TLL EM87;  KC4AAW EM85;  N9RXM EN41;  KB9RDS, WB8LNG and K8EJM EM79;  W9SR EN70;  K9ILU andW9CWG EN61;  N8GDP EM88 and KC8QDQ EM89.

Like I said, stand by for a separate post announcing a net many of you may not be aware of.
