I have used Echolink in the past, but have not been on it in a while.

I replied to this in another thread. Basically a router problem stops me at the moment.

Be around the coach today - Will try 40 meters around noon ?- 7230 and up for QRM. Just checked into the RV Service here this morning on 7230 and Southern GA was coming in very well and stations up in Virginia were coming in well.

I have to run over to Panama City for qualifications. Suppose to be there from 1000 to 1400 hours CT. Normally does not take that long. Will listen on 7230 or there about when I return.

Hi Mike
I just got home here but 7230 has my rig pegged out with broadcast here at my RV. In any case, one suggestion is to try checking into the RV Service Net that meets daily on 7230 from 700am to 800am. 40 Meters still seems to be kind of long propogation wise for those of us on the East Coast anyway. It looks to me at this point in the cycle at least East Coast USA the best bet would be between 1000am and 200pm sometime. Kind of leaves the weekend only as a good time for the folks that are not retired. But I think several of the OOR members trying to meet for an on the air are available weekdays. Anyway, we will keep trying. I am sure you are enyoying the TS2K.

Default Success !!

Good morning all.... Mark (W3ZI) and I had a great contact on 7230 about 0930 today. The only problem was a little QSB. We finally gave it up before the QSB won. I never paid a lot of attention to propagation charts but they really work.

Good signal Mark. Enjoyed the rag-chew.

I'm there too Mike....Will give you a call.

Mike, I was calling you and had NJ2D in Tennessee come back to me. He was very light copy. We probably could have made it had it not been for the static crashes associated with this front. I hear N5KGY on 3865 now with the Mississippi QSO Party.

GM Al,

I'm on 3950 right now, checking into a net. Will move up to 7230 in a few minutes and listen there this morning. I should be around for awhile this morning.

Maybe we can hookup on 40 meters.

The post time is an hour slow compared to the poster. It is an hour fast compared to my PC.
