    Right now hearing K5AB beacon in central Texas into southern California and no one on the band at all. There are a lot of ham radios for sale on QRZ and eBay.

    Depends upon the specific band. Half of the Beatles are dead. Two-thirds of Cream are dead.

    Sitting in the shack last evening, had the rig on 28.400. Close to local sunset, California started coming in nicely. On fellow on 28.405 was an honest 5X9. I did hear him say that he was running an amp tho...

    There have been some nice openings hear also mostly mid-West and SW. It's good to hear the band active. Look forward to some increased AM activity in 29.0 and up area. Have not checked the digital modes lately. Also 6 has had some good openings.

    Nope. Picking up 9K2HS on 20M SSTV in Alabama on an 80M OCF dipole.

    Yes they are. Kindly mail me all your radio equipment as you no longer need it due to the death of bands. I am good on QRZ. ;)

    That's IMPOSSIBLE, because ... you know ... the bands are dead. ;)
