It has been a long time since I have edited this page.
The 205MorningReport pdf mailing is a thing of the past. If you want to view any of the old reports they can be found on the ka1ze.com web site managed by Roger, K2SMN. The data base of over 1500 email addresses was too large for me to handle.
I moved to Phase II of the report. December 2014 I started the Facebook page 205MorningReport. This made life much easier. The activity reports could be placed in the time line at my convieniance. Facebook does have some drawbacks.. namely, it is social media! Some didn't want anything to do with registering and although I found a work around to view the page it wasn't the best.
Phase III December 22, 2015 I registered 205morningreport.com Please check it out! I will post anything of general interest to VHF+ weak signal interest. Please send me reports of your activity or spot your contacts and I will look for them and include in the 205morningreport. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
The 205 Morning group started in October 2010. Ken W2UAD FN13gc and I were discussing the poor activity level on 2 meters. The only time the band was busy was near a contest period. We also had a few weekly nets that we could check into. I was about to retire and wanted more! Ken thought if we got on the air the same time every morning eventually others would find us.... He was spot on! The quest began to help all other stations make contact with others by lining up antennas and helping with timing sequences. We did this on 144.200. It didn't take long before those monitoring 200 told us we should not use 200 for that purpose. We moved to 144205. 205 is a calling and working frequency. It is perfectly fine to allow many to call and use the same frequency. Hey after all, the band had been silent for to long. We were all "making noise." This was much better than the silence of white noise!
The pictures are taken at my contest location in FN01, It is a hilltop in the Allegheny Mountain range 2400 ft ASL. The tower is 155 ft of Rohn 55. It is located in the extreme NE corner of the grid, a stones throw from FN02,FN12, anf FN11
