My station:

KE3FL FM19, Mt Airy MD. abt 30 west of Baltimore on Rt 70.
* Yaesu FT-757 GX II with a receiver pre-amp
* Homebrew 80/40 meter dipole up 25 feet, with MFJ-941E tuner
   The dipole is in a V configuration, the center a bit lower
   than the ends.
   It is also bent because that's where the trees are.
   One leg points almost due West, the other South East.

At this point I gave up since I had house jobs to do.
I did keep an ear out and continued to hear the 2W sig with the
pre-amp on. Very interesting conditions.
