Hello,

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!

We have been using the ON4KST Chat page to line up our flashlights and try for that distant or not so distant contacts. This 21st century type of operating has made the bands active again. I have been putting a daily report together highlighting what has gone on for that day. ALL 50MHz and ABOVE reports I get find their way into the 205MorningReport. NET reports and operating activity coast to coast on all bands are reported.

If you would like to receive the daily 205MorningReport please email me and I will add you to the list of over 1000 weak signal VHFers.

Roger K2SMN, the net control station for the East Coast VHF Society Sunday morning net 144.250 10:30AM, has developed a web sit archiving the 205MorningReports beginning with January. Check out KA1ZE.com for past issues.
