Just a few minutes ago I was hearing 027 outside of Milan, Italy. I thought I heard him say he was running a 7 element beam. It sounded like he was talking to several Florida stations. I could hear his station, but I couldn't hear the parties he was talking to. In one transmission, I heard him mention Rob in Pensacola, FL. That's got to be 4500+ miles. So while the skip isn't hopping big-time, there is definitely some opening of the band.

It's been so quiet up here in Central Pennsylvania, nothing on air when I fired up the Ranger earlier this evening, haven't made a contact since 8/23,that's how bad the Conditions have been since then,wish Mr. Sun would start doing some work and fire up the propagation and so forth, hopefully sometime soon!!

Yesterday evening I was hearing Brazil and Australia at the same time.
Skip has been in and out for me down hear in South Texas. I have made a few contacts to California on up to Vancouver this past week. Even made a rough contact to Costa Rica the other day.

Since my last post, I made contact with 123 in Webster City, Iowa; 551 in Peterboro, Ontario; 185 in SE Michigan; 2117 N of Toronto, Ontario and 806 in Wisconsin. The skip has been exceptional this morning. The only problem has been the pile up on 38 LSB, so LSB 39 and LSB 37 have been the "go-to" frequencies.
Rick330man, your signal and audio was loud and proud here in Ontario, hope to make cantact again.
cheers!
