    Picked up C this evening, about 04:09 UTC SoCal was dead to me and then about that time it all came in at once. C was sitting there working stations and I pounced. Too bad I couldn't find any others working late, although P, which is hours later in StL was still working and as I type they popped up again. Some night owls on here.

    I got D and Q on 40 meters, along with most of them.

    Wish they tough ones would get on 2M FM! I could work them easily from here simplex!

    I see where you are this morning, listening on 80m. I have only once before tried 80m on this antenna and tried it again last night. Holy Moly! I think 80 is the ticket to getting the SoCal stations. Everything is in easy range and once the sun is down I'm lighting up SoCal and working stations very easily. I should get on 80m more often. Now I just require the patience of the spider. 73 de K8SQB

    Down to W6Q, who so far has only been on 7.260mhz which is under the lower side band of a short wave broadcast station.

    Ah, well.

    This is all doubly dangerous. I'm spending way too much time sitting here (collecting muchos QSOs) and not getting things done around the QTH and then I spot stuff on the For Sale forum I can't live without ...

    None of the stations picked up today, just can't turn the corner into SoCal this evening and J has been lurking just out of reach.
