I am amazed at how bad the bands are today, nothing much across twenty and well 15 and 10 or six nothing at all. Only able to work one station in France, good signal he was using 100 watts. Night before 9k2MU making it with a fine signal, band open, no one on the air. At least this summer I got my six meter antenna replaced and my expert amp going on that band, all we need is an opening. For now, well we just keep grumbling and hope things get better.
