Noise level was about an S3 or 4 here. You were weak and back in the noise. I could not even hear you on the vertical (ground mounted Butternut HF9V). The dipole is a Carolina Windom 80 Special, 50' up in the pine trees. I was running about 110 watts, and the dipole is roughly N-S oriented.

We'll have to try when the band conditions are a bit better.
