    Left PA south on IH81. Past 1400:

    1). A fair amount on LSB-38. Came and went as to clarity.

    2). Skip heavy at times on AM-19.



    (My favorite BBQ stand, Exit 87 BBQ, in Jackson, TN — IH40 a little east of Memphis — coming in loud & clear near the Army War College at Carlisle, PA).

    Last night?! 12:00am to 1:00am Checked a local SDR before I shut down the computer. I hear activity. Sporadic E? 38LSB. I turn on my transceiver and get OP's in southern Saskatchewan and North Dakota from my location in central Alberta. 400-600 miles. Unexpected for sure.

    Listening to a little Chicago SDR and can hear SC. Hoping the DX works its way west but not getting my hopes up.

    Skip gates opened up for sure, Ch 20 and several others sound like Ch 6. Can't get a word in edge wise, Chicago is locking it down and Indiana is helping....
