144.240 Net Reports from 6/7, 6/14 and 6/21

Weather permitting, the Wed. 144.240 net will be on tonight at the usual time of 8pm central/9pm eastern.
Net control is WB9LYH Mark, located in grid square EN54cl, right in the middle of WI.  Mark has a big station and enjoys pushing the propagation limits.  We appreciate our regulars and DX is always encouraged to listen in.   Please help us spread the word.  We continue to get new check-ins even after 9 years — very pleased by that.  Thanks to all who help increase activity on the SSB/CW portions of V/UHF.
The 144.240 net is informal and the goal is to increase activity on 2 meter SSB.  All licensed amateurs are welcome.   Net control starts out looking northeast, east and southeast into the eastern time zone.  From there, WB9LYH looks S, SW, W, NW and N at the end.  A typical net can take from 30-60 minutes, depending on activity levels.

Back on June 7, net control WB9LYH reported there was decent propagation.  There was a strong turnout with 16 check-ins:  KC9RAP EN63;  KD9BGY, KC9RIO, K9CCL, and N9JBW EN61;  WA9JML and N9NAQ EN51;  WB8LNG EM79;  AB9QH EN62;  N9ARB and W9UIJ EN52;  WA9BNZ and W9BBP EN40; W1JWS EN50;  N0JA EM49 and N9RXM EN41.
Had 2 new all-time check-ins to the Wed. 144.240 net.  Pleased to welcome N9NAQ and N0JA.  I enjoyed N0JA’s write-up on qrz.com.  50+ years of ham and life history, with a strong VHF presence thru the decades.

On June 14, net control WB9LYH reported, “An abbreviated net tonite.  Terrible noise to the south from weather.”  Glad 8 signals made it thru the noise:  KC9RAP EN63;  WA9JML and N9NAQ EN51;  KC9RIO, N9JBW and N9KKF EN61;  WB0SWQ and WA9BNZ EN40.   Thanks, Mark, for calling the net despite difficult conditions.

Last Wed. WB9LYH reported, “Good conditions tonite”  There were 12 check-ins:  WA9JML and N9NAQ EN51;  KC9RAP EN63;  N9ILU, K9CCL, N9JBW and N9KKF EN61;  KB9MIV EM59;  WA9BNZ and W9BBP EN40;  W1JWS EN50 and N9RXM EN41.
