Monday Night 144.250 and 432.100 MHz Activity — Every Week

   N0PB’s long-range SWOT net (www.swotrc.net for more info) is on 144.250 from EM39,  North-Central MO.    Phil is on every Monday night, starting at 7:45pm with omni loops up high.   Then at 8pm, he switches to a beam and calls south first, then east, then north and west before going back to south about 9pm (all times central).  
    So if guys are willing, let’s get on Monday and say hello to Phil N0PB’s net.   Great guy and he’s been doing it right for many years.   He’d enjoy hearing from you.   

   Another fellow who’d like to hear from you is on 432.100 every Monday night.   He’s N4PZ and his QTH is 100 miles west of Chicago, grid square EN52gb.   Steve has 4 long yagis and a kilowatt on 432 and works even modest stations out to 400+ miles, if they’re pointed right at him.   You can’t believe how loud he gets when those sharp yagis peak right up on you.   
   N4PZ is on 432.100 every Monday night at 8pm central.   Believe he starts out looking SW and then swings his yagis counter-clockwise, or S, SE, E, NE, N, NW and then W.   You should get on 432 and say hello and see who else you can work — N4PZ is always trying to setup contacts between check-ins; it’s a lot of fun.

   So conditions are going to (knock wood) improve next week with the warmer weather, plus you have two great nets to check out.   Get on and have fun.   Leave a comment here, and help motivate others.   Spread the word to a buddy or two of yours.
