    Hi!

    Looking to set up a SSB sked with anyone from N. Dakota, Washington, and Oklahoma.  

    I'm down to a few states and these seem to be elusive for me.

    Thanks and 73,

    Hi!

    I'm at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma. I'm limited to a 1/4 20 meter vertical because of antenna restrictions on post, but I 've worked every state out East.

    You tell me when.

    Hi thanks! I just got OK the other night. I do appreciate the reply! Still looking for N. Dakota and Washington. I think the contest this weekend will help out.

    Hey Brad,

    I would love to do a QSO with you. I'm here in Washington State, just a few miles from Seattle.

    I'm currently able to work 20 and 40 meters, and am usually open in the evenings (4:00pm and later Pacific time)

    set a time/freq and I'll try and be there

    Anthony, I've had an unexpected event come up and can't make the sked tonight. How about tomorrow night or the next?

    My apologies.

    I'm on 7.175 now. It's 20:05 EST. If it doesn't work out tonight, maybe we can try 20m on another day?

    Thanks!

    aye, I'm calling but it doesn't seem to be getting through on 7.175. According to the DX spots, it doesn't look like anything between the west and eastcosts is open. HOwever: 20 meters is wide open cross-country.

    Want to try 14.23 USB?

    Oh, well....no luck. Let me know if you want to try again. Maybe over the weekend?

    Take care and 73. Again, thank you for trying!

    hmm, ive just realized that there is a HUGE amount of RF getting back into the radio, which is causing audio splatter. I'll need to do some fiddling with the antenna/grounding to get it. Thank you for trying!

    I'll see if I can fix this for the weekend or so.

    Hello Brad,

    I'm currently transitioning from a 20/40m attic dipole to an outdoor antenna w/tuner, so as soon as I get everything up I will give the sked another try [​IMG] This may be a day or two.

    Good luck with the antenna install. I still haven't worked anyone in Washington, so if you end up getting everything straight, maybe we can try again.

    Hello Brad,

    I can work my 40m attic dipole now, but I am not able to try my 20m as it is still getting RF into my radio. If we can find a good time when the bands are open on 40m. What about this evening about 9:00 eastern time?

    Hi Anthony.
