Finally a demonstration that high solar flux doesn't always doom
the top band.  With SFI=190, A=12, K=1 some European signals were
599+ to Nebraska!  3DA0CA and ZS5K were both strong as well.
Just after turning the radio on I heard (but didn't call) OZ8RO
around 0240.  His signal was weak and distorted via propagation;
obviously not arriving via short path (as shown by best Beverage/
RF combiner).  While conditions were much better (and via short
path) after 0500z, 9A2AJ was the furthest east European that I
