22 Check-Ins to 144.240 Net Last Night

12:30pm Thur.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone.

Great to see the 144.240 net out of EN54cl, central WI, had a lot of activity last night.   Numbers have been very strong and we appreciate all of you who are helping to keep 2 meter SSB lively.
The 22 check-ins were:  K9UHF, KB9PSE and N9EM EN53;  KD9BGY, K9ILU, N9JBW, W9SUS and K9CCL EN61;  WB8LNG EM79;  K8TQK EM89;  AC8GD and W8SOL EN71;  KC9VHD and AB9QH EN62;  WA9JML EN51;  N9RXM EN41;  W9UIJ EN52;  WA9BNZ and W9BBP EN40;  W1JWS EN50;  KA0SWR EM28 and W0HXL EN21.
Pleased to welcome KA0SWR to the net.  EM28 is a long haul from EN54, so I imagine the bands were up a little last night.  We used to have several check-ins from the KC metro area so it’s good to hear from MO again.

The 144.240 net is called every Wed. at 8pm central/9pm eastern.  Eastern time zone is always looked at first.
Net control is WB9LYH in EN54cl, central WI, near WI Rapids, or a good hour+ west of Green Bay.  WB9LYH has a big signal — stacked 17B2’s and 500 watts from a ridgetop QTH.  Plus Mark enjoys pushing the propagation limits so DX is encouraged to give it a try.   Antenna pattern from central WI is NE and E to start, then SE, S, SW, W, NW and N over the next 45 minutes or so.  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.

** Net control WB9LYH advises he will be OFF on Wed. Dec. 28th.  The net will resume on Wed., Jan. 4th, 2017**
