144.240 Net Reports for 12/7 and 12/14

8:45 am Monday

Back on Dec. 7th, 144.240 net control WB9LYH said, “Very high noise tonight, we managed.”  Mark had 16 check-ins:  AC8GD and KC8ZJL EN71;  K9CCL and KD9BGY EN61;  WA9JML EN51;  W1JWS EN50;  N9EM EN53;  N9ARB and W9UIJ EN52;  WA9BNZ, WB0SWQ and W9BBP EN40;  N9RXM EN41;  W0HXL EN21; W0ANH EN47 and KB9MIV EM59.
This past Wed. (Dec. 14th), Mark’s comment was, “Conditions were difficult, variable propagation and lots of noise.”  The 17 check-ins were:  WB8AHT EN72;  W8YXT, AC8GD, W8SOL, N9YK AND N8JGG EN71;  K9CCL and K9ILU EN61;  KC9VHD EN62;  WA9JML EN51;  WB8LNG EM79;  W9BBP, WA9GNZ and WB0SWQ EN40;  W1JWS EN50;  N9RXM EN41 and W0HXL EN21.

Thanks everyone for making this a great net.  So many check-ins in different directions.  EN47 is far NE MN, near the Canadian border.  EM59 is down near St. Louis.  EN21 is SW IA.  EM89 is southern OH.  That’s a lot of territory to cover on the 2 meter band.  Especially with flat to tough band conditions in the dead of winter.
The 144.240 net is called every Wed. by WB9LYH Mark in EN54cl, central WI, near WI Rapids.  Start time is 8pm central/9pm eastern.  Eastern time zone is always looked at first.  All licensed amateurs are welcome; the net is informal and the purpose is to increase activity on 2 meter SSB.
If you need more info about the 144.240 net, consult the 2nd half of a post I made on Nov. 18th here at kc9bqa.com.

**  WB9LYH expects to call the net this Wed. — Dec. 21st — as usual.  Mark expects he will be OFF on Dec. 28th. **
