    Sounds like Texas, Ok, and AR had a lot of action yesterday. I had some conditions in the morning, then it sounded like Georgia was getting all the action with TX. Heard 357 getting his name called too. Had some conditions with South America towards late afternoon.

    HAH! This latest front actually brought some regional Dx with it. I think it's time to go mobile, away from the local noise and call CQ 38LSB ;)

    Was just talking on 38 LSB to one of my regular contacts (November Charlie #1) 65 miles away and heard some low signal DX coming in. Could not get back to the DX station though.

    Conditions are pretty wild on this end. One minute Florida is nearly full scale and then the next minute it's Alabama. I did have a short QSO with 419 / Jack in Alabama on the way back from the PO.:LOL:

    I'm not hearing much of anything this morning (at my QTH). I hopped on an East coast SDR site and heard N.Carolina, Kentucky, and Alabama, alternating with Ohio/Indiana so it's "hit and/or miss" like conditions yesterday. If it starts gets busy down here (SE Texas) I'll hop in the car and shoot some skip. ;)
