Up until yesterday I hadn't turned on my station in approximately 50 days. I was surprised to hear some skip. On Monday. There was plenty of Caribbean stations on 27.5 1550. Today (Tuesday) I turned on the Madison, and lo and lol heard several stations making the trip to New Jersey. Some from South Dakota. Some from Florida, and 459 (peeping) Tom from Ontario Canada. Enjoyed a 10-minute qso. It certainly brought back some good memories. I hope I'll be around for the next solar cycle.
