    Ireland is coming in super clear on 40 lsb right now but I'm not able to make the trip. Mother nature is teasing me.

    Just talked to 119 Northern Ireland. Thirty eight is a train wreck, he called on 38 and QSYed to 27.425, always good to talk across the pond.

    Good deal Shadetree. I listen for you whenever I hear the Northeast, but haven't heard you yet. 38 was definitely a train wreck. I could hear folks CQing the UK but I couldn't hear any responses. Just couldn't make the trip this time. I made some east coast contacts a ways above .405.

    Had very little skip today as well. There was a little skip from Kentucky and Alabama this morning but I had no luck in the mobiles.

    Got home this afternoon, hooked up my new toy and made a few contacts to Arizona and one to Las Vegas. Didn't hear bad Grandpa today though. At least I got some good reports on my new amp.

    As soon as I am back working and mobile, the booming dx will be backo_O and I will be squashed like a bug haha.
