Re: 40m Net

  I heard only KO8S/4 QNI at 0200z. Nobody else. Forgot to try earlier!
Weather isn’t much better here. Freezing rain.
  As a test, I called CQ 2 times each on 2 different antennas with 5 watts at 0100Z. Skip was already too long from WI. Here are my reverse beacon network spots. The spots at 7059 kHz were with my Carolina Windom 80, the spots at 7060 kHz were with my Butternut vertical.

Interesting night. I called the net 4 times as an experiment and here are the results:

5 pm CST  -  3 QNIs
     KK4ITX     John     FL
     KA5JRX    Bob     GA     Not a member and running 80w
     W0MFQ    Tom     MO    Running 5w

6 pm CST   -   0 QNIs

7 pm CST   -   0 QNIs

8 pm CST   -   3 QNIs
     KO8S/4     Karl     FL
     AB4QL      Barry   AL
     KK4ITX     John     FL

I had to pull the plug in the middle of the 8 pm Net QSO with KK4ITX due to lightning in the area.
I suspect I may have gotten other QNIs on the 8 pm Net.

The QSO with W0MFQ is notable - he was the only QRP close-in station but there is not enough data to demonstrate that a time shift for the net is warranted.
Probably best to keep the net at 8 pm CST.
