12 Check-Ins to The 144.240 Net Last Night

12:45pm Thursday

144.240 net control WB9LYH reported that propagation was good last night.  Check-ins were:  K9ILU and N9JBW EN61;  KC9VHD and AB9QH EN62;  N9IYV and KB9PSE EN52;  N9YK EN71;  NG9K and N9RXM EN41;  KA9DVX EN51; and WB0SWQ and WA9BNZ EN40.

We finally have high pressure overhead that isn’t moving much.  Extended periods of stable weather often mean improved band conditions.  VHF/UHF’ers need to get on the air during this stretch and call CQ, and start some activity; see who’s out there.  Mornings and evenings (esp. toward and after dark) would tend to have the best conditions.  Spin the beams, call around, keep the airwaves alive.

WB9LYH expects to be on for the next several Wednesdays.  The 144.240 net is called every Wed. night at 8pm central/9pm eastern.  Net control WB9LYH is located in EN54cl, which is Central WI, near WI Rapids or about 1.5 hours west of Green Bay, WI.  Mark has a big signal and enjoys pushing the propagation limits.  Please let VHF’ers in a very wide radius know that we’re on the air on Wed. nights.

From central WI, WB9LYH starts out looking NE, E and SE.  Eastern time zone is always targeted first with the 144.240 Wed. net.  From there, Mark starts edging S, then SW, W, NW and N to finish.  All licensed amateurs are welcome; the net is informal and the purpose is to increase activity on 2 meter SSB.  We always appreciate you helping to spread the word and doing  your part to make the SSB/CW portions of the VHF/UHF bands more active.
