Perhaps I should alert *other* foxes, too. I tend to be an experimenter.

As you (the fox) work the "hounds," assume the best about us, as Stan
undoubtedly did. I did work him several times, but the exchanges were
short and to the point. When he moved to 7.040 I could hear the
pileup on him...so for that third call I intentionally gave it a
good long breather (note the times).

I haven't had the power meter checked against the National Bureau of
Standards lately. :^) But at least the relative relationship of the
several power levels holds.

7.040- had the usual digital, but not strong. Most cw signals were about
the same strength rather than one KW and the rest peanut whistles...
which makes it satisfactory for shoehorning multiple signals into
the bandpass.

with 589 both ways.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the next fox.
