Last night I was getting splattered all over the place. The only people that
I could hear were Ron N8VAR who was doing great when the noise was below S9,
and KC1FB. After I contacted Ron I heard him respond to someone that he was
down to 500mw. I can usually hear better to the south and was supprised that
I didn't hear the usual gang down that way.
