I'm stuck at the home QTH this week, and have been monitoring 38 LSB the last few days. Not much activity Mon/Tue at all. Set up a program scan 36-40 LSB, nothing breaking squelch other than lightning strikes with the approaching afternoon thunderstorms and then I unplug.

Worked a local 30 miles away this morning, only contact this week. Kansas City and Wichita about 550-700 miles out are fading in and out at the moment (lunch hour Mountain time) here in Albuquerque, though not even moving the S-meter. Barefoot Uniden 980SSB into a 135 ft dipole/doublet up 16 ft tuned by an LDG AT-200 Pro II auto-tuner, so not a great DX antenna setup, more for low-band NVIS.

Two southern Colorado stations talking to eachother just faded in and out, one telling the other "I don't think we have any [propagation] conditions here at all".
