Default great lakes today


Made several good contacts around the great lakes today. Bumped it down with radio doctor, and 447 several times. I also made contact with 440 in minnesota. Storms rolling through the bluegrass gave me some good conditions today.

yeah I tagged him a couple of times. Actually talked to tin man as well. I think I may of heard you in there as well. Today was a good day too. Made contact with lost cause in the north west corner. Tried to get some Cali but its hard for me and my little bitty mobile.

Actually can't explain it. All I know is it was raining like crazy, the wind blowing and a few lightning strikes and some thunder. It was weird because usually those are the crappiest days for me but it seemed to be a good day that day. Weather was worse on the western side of kentucky and in down in tennessee but it sure wasn't ideal skip conditions here either. Either way it worked and I was getting out. I am by no means a genius at skip conditions and don't claim to be but you all know how mother nature is.
