    Didn’t turn radio on tonight. Big thunder storms doing their thing. Everything here unplugged and disconnected.

    Last Tuesday the 1st was the best I heard so far this year. All the channels were very active. I noticed something I never heard before. Organized skip shooting was happening on Ch 1. It started out with a moderator from Missouri. He was directing stations to call back that lived in only one particular state. Eventually he covered most of the states in the U.S. Mobiles were even given priority. He then handed the operation over to a moderator from another part of the country and so on. It seems these moderators were using the typical net type operation found on the Ham bands. Surprisingly most of them on the channel were cooperating by taking their turn instead of usual chaotic “only the strong survive” bash. I hope this is going to be trending into the future.

    @Shadetree Mechanic I was the guy near Pottstown trying to get back to you last week. That Vector4 is doing a great job for you. I had a real good copy on you, but seemed like I was having trouble getting back to you. I have 4 element Gizmotchy beam pointed south. Never talked to anyone in Dover before so was anxious to see if I could 'make the trip'.

    Late evening contact with Seattle on 38lsb.

    Was listening to a few stations and they sounded local. Then they mentioned areas I had no idea about. They were all in Washington state. LOL They were all blowing smoke down here in SoCal.
