Thanks to all who've responded about my whoas
on 40M lately. Sounds like I'm not the only
one who's had no joy.
This morning it occurred to me to rise my lazy
butt out of bed a few minutes early and try
40 before work.
Low and behold, a bunch of S8/S9 sigs all
around calling CQ. Gave a W9 a call and
he returned a 579 to me from Minnesota.
Guess my rig and ant. are working!
Maybe I just need to adjust my op time
to early morning, early evening hours.
I figured the 8 - 10 pm local time
might be best, but this is where I
seem to get a big "null" to my calls.
I need to learn that the HF ham bands
aren't required to accommodate my
"comfortable" op. times. I may need
to bow to what nature and the mighty
ionosphere dish out.
Oh well, another rookie ham lesson
Enjoy & Season's Greetings
Hey Chuck, how'd your EXP II do on
30M last night? We're waiting with
frosty breath (It's coooold in Dallas,
