Thanks to all who listened hard for my small signal - conditions put me down in
the noise level almost all the time, as far as I could tell.  
At 19:45Z I noted in the log that I could only find 4 stations on 20m and 3 on
40m.  It was just that bad here.  A later note at 20:21Z remarked that 40m was
opening up a bit, and things got a bit better.  Still, QSB is a real killer
when you start off at or below the noise floor.  
Hope to put you all in the log next time.  73 de kt8k - Tim
