      V/UHF bands have been enhanced in the Great Lakes for 
      much of the last 3-4 days. It's been especially strong the last two 
      nights into the morning hours. Activity has been low. 
      Tonight, we take advantage of that enhancement by adding 
      strong signals to the bands. What good is enhancement without 
      widespread on-air activity? 
      Further details are always available at kc9bqa.com. It's your 
      VHF/UHF newspaper. Spend a minute or two reading the 
      paper and you're all caught up. 

      Tonight we have:
      144.230 @ 0045Z or 6:45pm central/7:45pm eastern 
      KA0KYZ Terry in EN33 -- southeast Minnesota. 
      Starts out looking east, goes clockwise a full 360.
      ** MI/OH/IN stations note that KA0KYZ works W8BYA 
      in EN70 on a 440 mile path just about anytime.** 

      144.240 @ 0100Z or 7pm central/8pm eastern
      WB9LYH Mark in EN54 -- central Wisconsin.
      Starts out looking northeast, goes clockwise a full 360. 

      144.250 @ 0130Z or 7:30pm central /8:30pm eastern
      K8TQK Bob in EM89 -- southern Ohio. 
      Starts out looking north, goes clockwise a full 360.

      All 3 of these net controls make contacts in that 400-500 
      mile range, with flat bands. Very grateful that they've come on 
      board and are helping improve VHF. 

      Even if nets don't interest you, take advantage of the fact that 
      dozens of guys are on. We encourage you to look around on 
      144.220 and below, just like we encourage our net check-ins to 
      do the same. Wednesdays are becoming "can't-miss" nights to 
      be on 2 meters. 

      Of course, we also encourage you to visit the free, real-time 
      chat at www.on4kst.com. We use the IARU Region 2 Chat for 
      144/432 MHz, and it's a great tool for helping you make more 
      on-air contacts. 7 simple instructions for signing up are right on 
      my website -- front page.
