Re: 40 and 80 meter CW nets

We probably need to change the DMR net reminder to reflect the accurate time of the net.  While it does say 9:00 pm Central Time, it also says 0300 UTC, which is wrong during DST.

Thanks Ron, sometimes I throw out my Call when it gets quiet in the hopes of snagging an opening.  A few years ago when I first joined 4S there wasn’t any problem getting to KS but it’s a rarity now.

I often report my efforts not to complain but to let the NCS know that there’s more OPs trying than he was able to pick up.

Good time even if I don’t make it in the Log.

GE Ron 
That's COOL! 
I would be tickled to hear you from OR!
Yes, It sounds like 40 is long as usual after dark. 
We  are having some weird weather, rained all day and cold north wind, Thunderstorms at times, forecast is 2 inches of snow by morning. 
That about covers it all. 
Hope to hear you some day!

Some joy tonite. Band must have been long. Picked up your call out of the weeds once. Most of the time it was one or two characters as signals came in and went out. Sent out my call but no joy. First time in a long time that I heard anyone.

Good Evening again


I don't see any lightning close by but I have a strong s5-6 noise level. 

I will call a few rounds at 8:00 pm CDT.

It looks like that will be 01:00 UTC?

Good evening group

We have heavy storms on top of us tonight.

Right now it’s heavy rain with Thunder boomers and Ice mixed in.


I will check the lightning radar closer to net time but it was thundering just a few minutes ago.


So long story short, It doesn’t look good for NCS again tonight.


I will post again before net time.
