'scusa....I should have said "reporpoising".
Healthy amount of 40 meter activity 9-10PM EDT Monday.
K0SF Steve on the Collins 20V3/SP400
NI6Q - did not hear me
W8DOH Greg listening on a Fisher NuVistor R200B
WB2RON Ron Flex1K
and a few others but I had to go to bed
I think I have listened to them sometimes 3875
Pretty neat group.
These guys know their stuff.
I believe they use PWM

I heard a couple of ssb stations on 10m today. Nothing but tumbleweeds on 29.000. 3885 is a ghost town right now.
29.000 has been unoccupied for some time. I stay lower in the band when it's "working" as people actually hear me there.
Current E skip is better than E skip when there are some sunspots according to K1KW and my receiver.
As a comparison I was heard in Europe at a half dozen locations over the last couple days using FT8. No way could I do that on fone right now.
Nice activity today on 7.160(mostly TX & OK).
Best "needle pinner" was Darrell,WA5VGO, on his KW-1.
Several ops are planning to be back at 6:00PM CDT this eve.
Be there or be square.
Tuned up on 7160 a while ago and heard VGO and KD6OF and another K5 I think. Tried to break in a couple times but they weren't hearing me. I need a better antenna and more fire. I thought about firing up the plastic radio and leenyar but the leenyar throws off so much heat in summer. I gave up and called CQ on 7290, still no joy and when I came back to 7160 a slopbucket QSO was on 7159 and the group on 7160 was signing out. May be a See Dubya night.
Calling CQ right now on 29.010, 10 appears to be open, hearing ssb and digital down the band.
I heard a large strong group on 7290 last night about 9:30, then something fired up on 7305 that was very wide.
