    Got some different skip at the moment. On ch 28 I hear Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa. Normally I don't hear west of the Mississippi so this is a treat. Can't wait for the skip cycle to start running, gotta get my 27-4 put up.

    Yep. I start with a scratch pad, and add to the computer as time permits. Saves me from squinting in my phone!

    Prop is nuts. I had an hour long QSO with two in Brazil that never dropped below 57.

    Why is everyone calling it a lockdown? People here are calling the curfews "lockdown". Wrong you can go out for necessary reasons. This happens after hurricanes. Only time should be called anything remotely close is martial law. Then they will be quarenteening entire cities with blockade. Not picking at you Dan, but there is major difference. NY and NJ are very close to getting quarenteen. At least people are "Staying the Fuck at Home"......like that song.

    Well, intended facetiously, of course.

    But we’re under a “stay at home” order beginning tomorrow. I don’t think DXing by the seashore counts as “essential”, but I’ll argue that point. Haha.

    We have been under stay at home. But essential needs permissible. I go lumber yard tomorrow, that's essential under rules. Have 10 pm curfew till 4 am.

    Wanted to go out and dx by the water, Lavaca Bay or San antonio bay. Can get good skip and fish at same time. But too many things to do here.
