Thanks Noel for checking in band did get better around 9 pm but lots of nosy tonight. We may need to scan some more freq's for something better but will try 7.255 again Wed night. Lou (KC3FFW) got in late for a bit, just think band was not that great. You had a good signal at the end and we had several different check in's.

Great net Roger.
Thanks for the contact.

You were fading in and out, but I had pulled my radials in because the lawn guy is coming tomorrow. I really need to put the OCF dipole up on the roof.

Wednesday night at 9PM is my ARES/RACES net on 2 meters; but it only lasts about 10-15 minutes. I will be on battery (emergency) power, but switching to shore power does not take but a second.

I will check in right after that net secures.
