    Is it just me, or is anyone else experiencing less than stellar propagation into EU from the west coast of U.S.?
    I'm in Wa state. Asia, Australia, NZ South America and South Africa are no problem most of the time.

    its poor everywhere, its not just you. The normal afternoon JA traffic has been down an S unit or so the last week...I can usually pick out many Asiatic Russia stations in the evenings, but not lately. Er, Uh...its just you, your rig must be broken...just send it to me, its of no use to you;)

    You need a bigger shack. :)

    Naw, I can heat this one up in 5 minutes in the winter. I did hear Italy last night on 80 and Australia on 80 this morning so not too bad.

    Was hearing EU on 40 SSB this morning on a fairly low OCFD from Central Oregon. Didn't try to work them barefoot but some WA, OR and CA stations were working them easily

    You need to break through the NA East coast wall, just like we need to break through the west coast wall to Asia and the South pacific. Turn the beam and fire up the amp.

    The East Coast equivalent has been pretty good. Worked JD1BMH and T6AA. Decoded a bunch of JAs on 160M this morning.

    No tower or big amp so I'm happy whenever I can work a new challenge point. Now up to 2333 with ZC4UW on 30 CW.

    Very cool shack! And it's a shack literally! Perfectly simple, but effective. I like it.

    Are the tools in the upper left of the pic for persuasion? :)
