10m, signals from caribbean and central america CO2, P40, HK, HC8, 6Y, PJ2,
OE all S5+ for over 5 hours.  I could only work NA beaming due east on 10m
very odd, as this is 40 degrees away from normal.  K9NS was (the only NA
station) audible here for the same period - with backcatter effects, I'd
love to know where he was beaming.

20m, very strong here, but hard to break in.
40m, rock solid signals and low noise, many EU stations calling up over 7200
- maybe region 1 has new band plans I don't know about, but I think they
weren't watching VFO's properly.
75m, big signals nd low noise - but I could not TX into the pennants :-{

Just using a baby DX88 vertical on 40m~15m for this effort.
