    I saw J on 40, just briefly. He's got poor propagation to the west. I think he's trying to work eastward. Only luck today has been H and I, which I had before, but now on 30m.

    Still can't hear A, followed him all over the place today and signal has a hard time coming in where I'm at.

    Route 66 On The Air seems to be one of the more popular annual special events. Propagation hasn't been too good so far, making it even more difficult to work some of the stations. As usual for the past several years, there are some stations that seem to be on the air almost continuously, while there are a few others that will show up only for the last couple of hours on the last day of the event. The operators of those stations will make about 1 QSO every 2 minutes, tediously repeating the same elaborate set of information to each and every station that they work. They'll act as if they're having a casual rag-chew, seemingly oblivious to the fact that they're the object of a pile-up with hundreds of stations eager to work them. And so it goes, year after year..........

    Finally got U last night. That's a Sweep. And no FT-8.
    WA6MHZ and W7UUU like this.

    Most don't seem to be hardened Contesters or DXers. Just regular Hams who are told: "here work this pileup". Many are quite overwhelmed by the Voracious Hams calling (including me)!!

    FT8 pileups are much more subdued, and NO "PLEASE COPY" on FT8!

    Last weekend there was a ton of east coast contacts but still had some west coast also. It was probably 7:1 E vs W. Bunch of west Canada though, kinda weird conditions. NY and NJ said we were blowing their ears out during greyline
