    Clark, KE7TRP started a group on 14.330 every
    Wednesday at 1600 hrs or 4:00 pm PST/AZ,
    7:00 EST.
    We had a good turn out last week and look forward to having an even better gathering this evening. We plan on having several control ops to handle check ins. Each op will make a list of stations and call them in turn. State your call, QTH and equipment used.
    This is a directed net but informal in nature and looking to bag as many as we can work.
    Relays are welcomed when needed, and of course conditions dictate results.
    I hope to hear you!

    This is interesting to me. Good deal for Clark to initiate this. For several years I was quite active on the 20m Monday evening 14330 group. That group disbanded mainly due to poor propagation. During the good years, we still had to stop during the winter when the days were short. But every time was a new experience because 20m propagation always seems to go somewhere. Sometimes short skip, sometimes long skip, and sometimes maybe no skip within the USA.

    Right now I have some equipment problems, and have taken down my 20m antenna. Also since I was active on 2om, I have a new HVAC system and wash machine that both go "Tilt" when I fire up on 20m. The HVAC also puts out an S9 spur every 20Khz across 20m. For me to get on 20m again, I have a lot of work to do.

    Keep this post open, and update as the Wednesday nights pass by. I did that for years on AM Fone 20m band section.

    Hi Billy

    Sounds like a great time. Here is a link to an online net logging solution that allows multiple net controlers to monitor and log the check ins at the same time. It also allows those checking in to see who’s turn it is. It may mske things easier.

    I was able to briefly speak with Harvey, W5JAY in NW Arkansas before the band went nuts.

    I heard the following last night:

    Clark, KE7TRP, heard briefly out in Az., whom I visited one time while out in the Phoenix area,

    Craig, KB3RHR, Pa., was coming in strong,

    Matt, KD0EZS, Tribune Ks, was coming in strong,

    Jeff, N0NQN, Mn., was very weak as his signal was passing over me,

    Dwight, KB4WLF, in Ga, was coming in pretty good as well.

    It’s fun to hear all of these great stations coming in from all directions. This group is going to be a fun one to witness as time goes forward.
    Looking forward to next week. We had a very large storm run through Tucson yesterday so I was unable to participate.

    Yes, we will keep this thread bumped up. As Brian mentioned, I like the idea of using netlogger for this group. I used it a couple of years ago with a group on 40 meters with great success.
    I hope you get your appliances sorted out. Curious if chokes on them will help or perhaps orient the antenna 90 degrees to see if that helps.
    Look forward to hearing your signal soon.
    Good luck.
