    Yeah, we recently got hit by a CME, so the bands are a bit dicey. Glad we were able to make contact before it hit. BTW - I was up on 12m phone a few minutes ago & talked to Namibia. He was a solid 5/9 here. I'm hearing Reunion Island right now on 15m phone, coming in at 4/2.

    Had a Head up my A$$ affair here. Couldn't figure out why all the sigs were so low and yet the antenna tuned up fine. That is because of the @#@#@# MFJ Autotuner. I was rotating the coax switch back and forth between the Cushcrudd R7 and the TRibander, but no change to the stations I worked. THEN I noticed that the MFJ was switched to ANT2, which is the 160/80/40 dipole that doesn't work. Well, evidently it DID work as I did work many stations on it, but no where near as good as the Tribander!!! Once that error was corrected, I started to hear sigs 59+, but suddenly 1800Z came and I had to switch to 15RTTY. Now I am listenning to HISS again as there aren't many RTTY stations out there. Can't go back to 15 SSB till 2200Z!!!!!!

    Ahh...that explains things. It did seem odd that you had such poor copy on everyone. But you should be able to do pretty well this afternoon.
