This weekend sucked for me!! Couldn’t make a contact. You start thinking something is wrong with your gear.

On the drive in to work made a clear contact with 101 Florida. Station still works!!! Happy again:)
The Ranger was quiet all week also,it's like Mr.Sun said I'm taking a break from Radio land, LoL hope your Easter was a good one!!

Was trying to mow the grass, then we got a bit of rain. The rain brought the DX with it, East coast talking to west coast, like fish in a barrel. Stryker 955v2 with Uniden BC645 electret condenser microphone doing a great job. Mic gain all the way up, just like on the K-PO DX-5000+.

Then I heard someone calling Tokyo! This is getting good!

For the past several days I have been also hearing some long skip at my location in Western NY. Shortly after the skip died off later in the afternoon on 19, I checked 6, nothing was heard there either. I initially thought that was the end of it until 5 was still very active. It felt very strange to hear 6 totally quiet while 5 was booming. Of course 5 was all Spanish, otherwise I’d be looking to see if the analog dial on my old cybernetic had slipped. I also dropped down below to discover 26.765 and 26.715 active. For the past few days Spanish speaking lady on 26,765 and others on 26.716 all seem to be conducting business.
