Sunday night 01/08, two hours before the 9PM net on 146.94, you could have heard Mark KC0DWE aboard a Learjet at 39,000 feet traveling from somewhere North towards Florida. He mentioned coming out of the Dakotas, across a corner of MN, and then down diagonally across Spencer Iowa to Fort Dodge and Des Moines.
You had to ‘have been there already’ to get in on it because the whole thing lasted only a dozen or two minutes, DWE crystal clear on 146.52 and most everyone else undiscernable (except Nick KC0YKO who called several times unsuccessfully).
DWE was S2 to S4 most of the time, full quieting, and responded to stations KE0KER, K0FTB, KE0LCQ, and KD0VYD among others. Every time he got done talking there was a pileup, unheard here in Co/Bluffs, but Mark would say ‘I heard FTB’ and then get the full call and have a short QSO. He finally quit nearing Des Moines, saying he was hearing a 2 way on the ground and didn’t want to interfere. He also said the flight was of a medical nature.
