    10:45 PM and the 10 meter repeater in New York is doing great,

    Heard it around midnight about a month ago. My antenna was a ground-mounted 1/4 wave. I could even key it up with 100W. Not bad for FM and 1200 miles away, although the repeater is up in the mountains in upstate NY and has quite a height advantage.

    I have heard these on my Ratshack 10 meter rig and it drives me nuts not to be able to use it to try to hit the repeater. :eek: :D

    I hear it pretty consistently here in NW Missouri, every day, usually in the mornings and evenings.

    I did a google on it, and it does have a website. The 10 meter machine is part of a linked network on 2 and 70cm into the Big Apple, and the 10 meter transmitter runs about 1200 watts output, so I guess it makes its own Sporadic-E clouds.
