Net Reports — K8TQK 17 Check-Ins and WB9LYH 13

   5am Thur.  
   Let’s get these net reports up bright and early today.  
   WB9LYH was back on the 144.240 net, from EN54cl, right in the middle of WI.  Stacked 17 B2’s and 500w from a ridgetop QTH.  Gets out a long, long ways.  Mark worked N9OLT EN64;  K8GDT EN91;  N8WNA EN82;  KC8ZJL EN71;  WB8AUK EN80;  KY9E EN53;  KC9CLM EN52;  K9CCL EN61;  WE9K EN62;  WA9BNZ EN40;  WB0YWW EN22;  KG0SJ EN22 and K0SIX EN35. 
   Mark says to expect him again on 144.240 next week — his work schedule has cleared up for now.   Same start time of 7pm central.   Starts out looking NE, then swings clockwise a full 360 over the next hour or so. 

   K8TQK last night was operating on 144.252.  Bob has had to slide up a little because of a new noise source that gives him a very hard time on .250.  Bob’s 17 check-ins were:  KF8MY EN84;  N8WNA EN82;  WB8AUK EN80;  KC8YJB, NF8O, KD8FHY and K8GDT EN91;  W8WG and KD8DJE EM89;  W2UAD FN13;  AC3L/M FN00;  W4TMW EM84;  N4PPG EM76;  KY4MRG EM77;  WA4REE EM65;  KI4ROF EM55 and WB9LYH EN54.
   Bob’s net starts at 8:30pm eastern.  He starts out looking north, then swings clockwise over the next hour or so.  Like WB9LYH, his signal gets out a long, long ways.  Both our net controls enjoy DX check-ins, so if you’re in that 300, 400, 500+ mile range, listen their way and say hello when they peak up on you.

   EDIT — 6:45am  Just got email from K8TQK and Bob is going to continue operating his net on 144.252 (not 144.250).  He needs to be up 2kc to get away from a new noise source that’s popped up in his area.  Please help spread the word that you can find K8TQK’s net from EM89je, south-central OH, every Wed. at 8:30pm eastern on 144.252.
