got up about an hour after sunrise (this is EARLY) up here this time of year.
Several LOUD JA's on low end of band.....opening lasted about 15 minutes
before they disappeared......my 0.95 watts could not make it.

Interesting qso last pm with K0ERM. He hung on for the first 5 minutes
while I was 229 to 339 and over the next 1/2 hr my signal gradually built
up to 589. (He is in SD and was 599+ with 75 watts.) This was about an
hour before sundown.

Just before him I chatted with N5DW.....I called his very week signal and
gave him a 449. Why did I bother calling him? He signed N5DW/QRP!
He was using a NN1G. I have yet to work another sierra owner!
