The reason might be that it's a bit early for 40m grayline contacts.
I work 40m coast to coast at that time on a regular basis. And 20m (minus my surrounding states here in the midwest).
On the first night, I got onto echolink and there was a member there who did tune up on both 7 / 14 mhz and I could hear him from Ohio on both bands.
I think more a more likely reason is that while everyone want's an HF net, no one is participating. This is the second time I have started an HF net. I started one the early spring of 2011, and again, there were quite a few people interested, but no one checked in. And on that net I think we started on 80.
Everyone talks about it until someone actually does it. i.e. Men of many words and few actions.
OK. All that aside. What proposals do you guys have for an HF net?
We went for Sundays because that is when we hold our Echolink nets. What day would work best?
But I'm still up for a net. Maybe something during the week, say around 07:00z, so that us west coasters can get in on it?
You don't mean 07:00z I hope. That is like 2am here in the midwest.
What time works best for you guys? Would you like to push it back after 0000Z (7pm Central)?
