Field Day and the Internet

Where was the internet conference bridge on Field Day? We tried all the
usual nodes and none of them were on the air. As a personal friend of N2MH
I can tell you that his computer was hit by lightening while he was away
on business. That is why QSO: N2MH-11 was not available. Where was LONNY?
Where was N4GAA-11? He was on very early Saturday morning but once Field
Day started he was gone. The other -11 stations such as N2MEG, KA2TIH,
KB2NEX and others on the nodes list of our local NETROM site were there
but nothing happened once we connected to them.
Anyone have any explainations?

Which brings me to my next idea!  What say we apply to the FCC to use 
14.233 for the new all contest net?  (We will need special permission 
from them to reasign this frequency to us)

Yes lets have all the BIG amp BIG antenna boys from PVRC, FRC, YCCC West 
Coast Contest and whomever else Get on every Sunday from say 12:00Z to 
24:00 Z and endlessly discuss contesting, Amps, Big antennaes maybe DX.  
It would give the old 3-500zs a little work out durring the non contest 
season and give us a chance to optimize our DSP filters.

Just an idea.
