I could hear Mark and he heard me once. 40 meters is up and down today. We're going to try again, 7.230 MHz, at 4PM ET if anyone cares to join.

Hi Andy.. Mark and I made contact. We were very light. Only about 40% copy. I hear a QRP station in Raleigh, NC.

Tony, KC5PXW, said I just missed you. Had a S-7 on him and he was running only 4 or 5 watts. He gave you a call for me but guess you had already gone. Sorry.

We will try it again.

Sorry I missed seeing this until now. I was surprised when I made a couple of contacts on 17M Friday afternoon. One was in NW Oregon. He was running 200 watts and a rhombic antenna. I was using my 100 watt and the Carolina Windom 80 at 50' in the air.

I missed it.

Earlier this week somebody pulled out in front of Matt (aka Atlas) and ruined his little Ranger pickup. Tragic in that is was paid for and got 24 mpg. So today we went truck shopping and found a really clean 2001 F-150 that he really likes. Then we went to strip all the stuff out of the wreck. By then we were hungry and it was 4:30.

Maybe next time.

You going to run the net on Sunday? I still work and can't do the weekday nets, except alternating Fridays I have off.
