N9XKH in EN52il Will Call 144.240 Net on Oct. 25th

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

6:30pm Tues.

Regular 144.240 net control WB9LYH isn’t available tomorrow night.
When Mark can’t call the net, N9XKH Dennis has helped out the past few years.
N9XKH is located on the WI/ILL state line, a little NW of Rockford.  Dennis has good yagis up high and puts out a decent signal.  What Dennis doesn’t have is a lot of time for ham radio.  So when he is able to be net control, he really appreciates a lot of check-ins.  This gives him a good idea of how well he’s getting out.
Tomorrow night (Wed. Oct 25), look toward N9XKH on the middle of the WI/ILL state line — grid square EN52il.   I trust that N9XKH (roughly) follows the usual rotation of looking northeast into MI first then gradually swinging E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and N to wrap up the net.  The 144.240 Wed. net always starts at 9pm eastern/8pm central.   All licensed amateurs are welcome.  The net is informal and the goal is to increase activity on 2m SSB.

I have fallen behind and hope to get caught up this week.
I’m glad that Wed. 144.240 net continues to have lots of check-ins across a wide area of the Midwest and Great Lakes.  That’s the main thing.
