K8TQK EM89 Calls 144.252 Net Mondays @8:30pm eastern

1pm Thur.

If you’ve been visiting kc9bqa.com for some years, you already know about many of the nets and activity nights we’ve been promoting since 2009.
But time passes, and (hopefully) we get new visitors, so I like to repost info and keep it fresh.
There’s a big 2 meter SSB net on Monday nights. It’s called by K8TQK Bob, who’s located in EM89je, or south-central OH. Starts at 8:30pm *eastern*. It’s on 144.252 because K8TQK has a big birdie right on 144.250. Bob has long yagis and good power from a hilltop QTH and he gets out forever. When I was on the air, I could work him on a 392-mile path (from my QTH just north of Milwaukee) even under flat conditions 95% of the time.
The antenna pattern from K8TQK’s south-central OH location is North to start, then NE, E, SE, S, SW, W and NW over the next 45-60 minutes. All times estimated, never know which direction might be busier on a given night. As with any net, be flexible and patient. Typically K8TQK is looking NW toward Chicago and WI about 8-8:30pm *central* time.  Our Wed. 144.240 net control WB9LYH (EN54 Central WI) can make contact with K8TQK regularly on a 475+ mile path.
There’s a lot to listen to on Monday nights.  I will post about N4PZ’s 432.110 group next.
