Wednesday evening 80m net

Wayne Dillon
 

Good morning one and all,
Well it was a fantastic evening last night. a total of 15 check-ins. One net kinda merged into the next, I took a break at around 01:50 (cup of tea and the call of nature!) and at 02:00 we kicked off again. I know some folks missed the e-mail about me calling the net but to those who called me Terry, no worries, (actually I'll take it as a compliment :) The main thing was we had a good time. Almost all signals were at least 559 so a huge thank you to all who called in, you made my evening special.

Here's the list from 01:00 on:

K2HT - Harold - MO
AC0BQ - Johnny - KS
WD9F - Woody - IL
KD4OBQ - Pat - OK
KB4QQJ - Randy - NC
N0NB - nate - KS
WB0QQT - Steve - NE
N9RLO - John - IN

W4RK - Vernon - MO
N8VCR - Jeff - MI
WB9DLC - Mike - IN
WR9H - Herb - IL
N2UHC - Tom - KS
WB0QQT - Steve - NE
KD4OBQ - Pat - OK

Knocked off at 02:40 ish.

I tuned up to the PSK net but did not see anytthing on the waterfall except a signal I could not identify, it was about 500Khz wide and real weird looking (JT65?). I guess I'm going to have to get on the digital modes more so that I can ID these different signals.
Again thanks to all who checked in and to those I missed, well you'll have Terry back as MC next week and I'll be back on '40.

I did recognize the new 4SQRP callsign, but I didn't see the email about Wayne being net control tonight until just now, so I called him "Terry." Sorry Wayne.

Ge Wayne and the group.
Thanks for the nice check in, Wayne.
It was nice to work the club call again!
When I heard you call CQ with it I had to stop and listen, and then It
came to me, oh the new Club Call!
I heard several familiar calls here in SE KS tonight.
Sounds like 80 was in great shape.
Again, thanks Wayne, nice job!

Forgot Wayne was net control at 7:00CST tonight and trying to get used to the new call (WQ5RP) Sorry Wayne.

On a good note I worked an 74 year old ham east of Baton Rouge that built a Rockmite and he was booming in at 500mw. He sure got the 1000 mile/watt on that one and had a good chat with him as his first TX was an Eico 720 like the one I was using.

Now to build an attenuator.

Sorry Wayne

OK,
To recap, I'll call the 80m nets tonight, no early 40m net, maybe a late 40m net if I get through, of course if there's anyone else who would like to step up...

Re: Wed Nite Nets

Viewing the propagation for '40 tonite I'll volunteer to call the 80m nets, if we get finished by 02:30z then I'll QSY to '40 and see what's what but I feel that 80 will be far more productive for everyone.
So, see y'all on 3564 at 01:00z. Watch QRPSpots for the exact QRG and let's have fun.

Yeah.  I couldn't tell if he had someone checking in with him or not.  I had been listening for a while and I could tell that the freq was in use, but that's about it, so I was doing other stuff.  When I heard him ask for QNI, it almost startled me! hi!

 

Maybe Thursday.

Yea I know about the windows. Sometimes I push #28 magnet wire out thriu the
screen, but thta not a very good antenna either. Better than inside tho I
think. Good luck, you should have some success on the 12 the 12th floor Spot

Hope to work you tonight.
