    I couldn't hear anything either. Everything is buried in the muck.

    Hey Mudduckmobile - what type of antenna are your running when you heard these guys? Are you on a vertical or a dipole? I'm thinking of stringing up a dipole because my fiberglas ½-wave vertical just seems to miss a lot of this stuff. I'm in south Seattle.

    Either a dipole or an aluminum vertical instead of the fiberglass maybe.

    I give a call out on 38 every night before sleeping. I'm in Renton, to be specific, and don't think we can ground wave from here. If you wanna .555 sometime, we'll try to see if we can make the trip. I'm at 60watts on SSB, not sure what that will do.

    I wonder how many miles it is as the crow flies to your locale?

    I'm roughly 47.4797° N, 122.2079° W

    I'll be on USB .555 with squelch wide open until 730!

    conditions are not in our favor! Just tried a CQ call with full RF out.

    I am building a new dipole that may be better than this ½-wave fiberglass stick. I just moved into a new place and I'm on the top floor so that is good. I don't think cutting in my RL-503 would really help much at this time?

    Give a call! I'll be listening!

    Indeed! I haven't even tried on 555 since I have started back in the hobby. I need to program my AT-6666 up this weekend so I can scan!

    Thanks for the try. I don't think ground wave is going to work for us but ya never never know!
