144.240 and 144.250 SSB nets *ON* tonight
- WB9LYH has a power supply problem tonight, so I'm taking both nets. Hope to hear a few of you say hello.
I'm on 144.240 at 8pm your time, looking ENE into N Lower MI. I then swing beams clockwise, calling CQ frequently. I'm probably past MI/IN and pointing at ILL/MO by about 8:20-40pm.
I also call a 2nd net on 144.250 at 9:30pm your time. With that one, I tend not to look into MI until at least 10:15-10:30pm. So for most folks the earlier net is your better option.
Even if you don't work net control, be aware that many guys are on, and we encourage you to look around and create your own activity. Please do this on 144.230 or lower. Like I said above, I'm past MI/IN by about 8:30pm anyway, so you may as well see who's left, once I've moved on.
It's nice if net control can hear from a few dozen check-ins, no doubt. But what's even *better* is when those check-ins spread out and call CQ in various directions. That's when you really hear the band come alive.
