Are there any Flex users net's on the west coast?

I see some really old posts on this question but nothing recent. I think it would be great to have a weekly west coast Flex users net.

    I've tried the weekly Sunday net @ 19:00Z on 14.329, but haven't heard a thing lately.  Sure, I'd be interested in a west coast net..

    Tried to talk with Dudley at Flex. 
    Back a few years ago, the net was going hot and heavy. However, the way I understood the situation, either Flex or Dudley where advised that the net operation in the amateur band was or may be in a conflict of interest: Since, Dudley was an employee of FlexRadio.   
    The net continue but the organization was not the same. 
    1. There has been a Flex net operating on 7.169 kHz Sat/Sun morning; that the West coast may hear, since is/was run by WS7M in the morning. I think I remembered hearing them a few years ago, when I lived in San Diego.
    2. There was/is net operating from the East coast Daily on 7.192 kHz operated by VA3WTB. Which I was hearing a year or two back. However, they could not hear me or ignored me. lol

    That was never considered a net on 7.192. But there were a few of us that got together every morning around 11:00am  
    We did a lot of audio work helping others EQ and set their radios up for best audio sound, it became busy each day.
    But with the conditions now we still get there but for me I have trouble hearing people so I listen if I can.

    Ernest, we always listened out for others, sorry we missed you....

    N6YFM is West Coast, Los Angeles area.
    40 or 20 would work best for me.
    Rather few of us have good 80m antenna's at any height.
