    A little more tame today in these parts but still too windy (35+ mph) to hang the double bazooka outside for temporary. I ran up to Liberal Ks dropped one, up to Dodge city to pick one up and bring home so had the wind either at my back or head on mostly. It's the angled headwind or crosswind that has you wrestling the sternin wheel and make for a long day. I've never understood how Chicago beat us to the windy city title. Now back in the market for a base antenna, can't miss out on the dx'n

    Last week I had a day where the only DX I picked up was Puerto Rico. Today was a very similar experience. Brasil! I heard Brasileiro Portuguese on USB 40, AM 37 and a bunch of other channels - including LSB 38 where 199 out of Sao Paolo calling DX non-stop. The one exception was a station from Barbados on LSB 38 who was coming in pretty consistently. Other than him, it was all Brasil.
