I heard a couple stations here in VA around 12:00 12:30 today. They were having some trouble getting each other clarified in. Another station and I tried to contact either or both but they never heard me. Band seemed to close down right after that since I didn't hear anyone or anyone heard me until I had to close down around 2:00.

I'm glad folks continue to try. I've tried a few times today. No SSB traffic, but some AM activity. I'll keep trying tomorrow, Sunday.

Keeping the faith and continuing the effort.

LET's TRY THIS AGAIN THIS WEEK-END

I've been getting some interesting skip down here the last few days. Yesterday was pretty dead, but I got great propagation for about an hour. I wound up making a really strong connection with 965 in Nebraska. We made contact on LSB 38 and then carried on the conversation on LSB 39.

Today again sounded like a dud, but then around 2:00-3:00P.M. eastern I started picking up a bunch of stations in California and Arizona. WR 0149 in New Mexico made contact on LSB 38. We did the QSY shuffle to LSB 39, where we were able to speak for several minutes.

So, it looks like there is some sky propagation to work with. To try to improve the chances of success, I'd propose that folks try to make contact on LSB 16 at 9:00A.M., noon, 3:00P.M., 6:00P.M. and 9:00P.M. eastern times Saturday, Sept. 10th (tomorrow) and at the same times on Sunday, Sept. 11th.

Let's give it a try!

I proposed the schedule to improve chances of making contacts by getting everyone to try set known times. Starting 9:00A.M. tomorrow, I'll be trying every 3 hours. Let's see if this gets off the ground. Otherwise, we're kind of stuck with the LSB 38 pile up.
