    I am usually listening on 38 in the morning between 5:30 and 6:00 local time. I hear a couple of people talking in the distance right now, can hardly pull them out. I keep listening for the grey line propagation from Europe while also checking .555 periodically, haven't heard it in a long time.

    Thank God I heard someone else mention this. Frankly I don't know why half the people are on the radio any more. All they want to do is 'wave a hand' and say 73's. No one even asks me for my first personal or to QSL anymore, never mind having a QSO of more than 1 minute. I miss the old days. I guess I'm becoming one of those old farts.

    Fairly good skip this morning. Mainly Florida and states to the SW. Another QSO with 123#1952 Oliver in Bermuda.

    Then I heard 1183 RI Leo on the radio. Talked to him some but conditions were not so good.

    That's all folks from possibly the most cluttered radio station around. Cleanup is in order. Way too many jumpers, wires, switches, etc. Somethings gonna blow beneath the ammo. :eek:

    Dead air here today except for the "the only good Communist is a dead Communist" guy hollering on .385.

    And I was dumbass enough to tune up to .835 and .830 to see what I could hear:rolleyes:
