    My first thought was dang it I got hit by lightning since I was out of town and didn't disco my antennas. But a quick push of the tune button said everything is good. Looked at the solar weather report and bingo we are in a black out, even most of the JT signals are nill. So much for checking in on the Kenwood net today, I guess I'll go back back to watching Irma.

    Wow! Just got home from Saratoga ham fest, turned on HF - NOTHING! Came to here to confirm I'm not the only one. Won a Gigaparts hat in door prize drawing, so that's good. Heard a vhf contester on 146.55 on the ride home, maybe I'll give that a look. Cheers!

    The bad part is that it is also affecting the hurricane nets. I was listening to one of them on 20m and......bam. Gone.

    Reminds me of my first radio and antenna setup, a Yaesu FT757 to a vertical mounted on the house roof... I earned worked all neighbors with the TV and Telephone endorsements.... I also enjoyed the CW side tone set off by every smoke alarm in my house.
