Re: Wednesday evening nets


80m was noisy and NQ0RP's sig was mostly 349, but improved a bit towards the end towards 449; still, it was a pretty shaky QNI from me.

I was of course mostly in the receive mode throughout the net.  Here's how the other QNIers fared in NJ:

KV6Z              559

WA9PWP       559/569

N0NBD           579

NK8O             Unreadable

AC0BQ          569/579

AF5AF           Inaudible

WA0ITP         569

Keep in mind that this was a fairly long-lasting net, and as more darkness occurred all sigs became a bit stronger, e.g., Bill and Terry might well have swapped RSTs if their places in the QNI queue had been reversed.

Nice net on 80 meters!
I was glad I could check in for a change.

I had a good copy on Chas and a light copy on Paul on 40 meters.
Yes the SSB skip was pretty rough.

Good morning all,
OK, 40m was crap last evening, too much SSB spatter, maybe an alternative 40m QRG say 7116? I'll try and get a listen down that end and see how bad the spatter is.
Last evening's 40m checkins were:
WA9PWP - Paul - WI
W2SH - Charles - NJ

80m checkins:
KV6Z - Bill - OK
WA9PWP - Paul - WI
N0NBD - Paul - KS
NK8O - Chas - KS
AC0BQ - Johnny - KS
AF5AF - Rocky - AR
WA0ITP - Terry - IA
W2SH - Charles - NJ

W2SH - Charles - faded right out at the end but I'm happy to say he did make it into both nets.
Not only but also, PSK31 is now up andrunning at the NQ0RP shack so I guess I'll be visiting the dark side occasionally :) I'll do the first call around 20:00 CDT (01:00z) Friday evening on 5580.5 with the usual caveat, +/- as needed.

Thanks all es be blessed,
