Jim:

Well you had a good signal here during our QSO, though not as loud as
during the FOX hunt last Thursday evening. The band quit here also about
2130 or slightly before. Yikes, sounded like someone just pulled a shade
down and literally all contesting disappeared. Thanks for the QSO. BTW,
your new K2 sounded very good.
