10 Check-Ins to the 144.240 Net Last Night

8am Thur.

Last night’s check-ins to the Wed. 144.240 net were:    K9ILU, N9JBW and N9IYV EN61;  KC9RAP EN63;  KC9VHD EN62;  WB8LNG EM79;  N9RXM and KC9OVD EN41 and WA9BNZ and WB0SWQ EN40.

Net control WB9LYH says he expects to be on next week.

The 144.240 net is called every Wed. at 8pm central/9pm eastern by WB9LYH.  Mark is in EN54cl, central WI, about an hour and a half west of Green Bay.  Mark has a pair of 17B2’s (horizontally polarized, as is the custom on the SSB/CW side of VHF/UHF) and 500 watts from a ridgetop QTH and he routinely gets out 400+ miles to other well-equipped stations.
WB9LYH appreciates all check-ins, local and DX.  He does enjoy pushing the propagation limits.  Please let VHF’ers in a very wide radius know that we’re on the air on Wed. nights.  With warm summer nights comes potential band enhancement.  Let stations in that 500-1000 mile range know about us.

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 have had 100’s of unique calls to the net over the past 7+ years.  We appreciate you helping to spread the word and doing your part to make the SSB/CW portions of the VHF/UHF bands more active.
