Monday night, I came home about 20 minutes before his sunrise
and he was over S9 with a S0 background. TX wouldn't load and
I discovered, for the first time the next day, that I had a shorted coax
The following three nights, he either never got over S1 or was inaudible a lot
on my 55 degree beverage (73.1 degrees from here in CT) w/10 dB preamp.
No sunrise enhancement for them was observed over these nights.
So, I tried earlier and he was S1 to S2 tonight and worked him at 0018Z somehow!
I'm very glad that some midwest and west coast stations got him over the
last few nights with only a few minutes of darkness since the prop seemed to
be favoring their direction.
