The conditions just do NOT seem to be there---at least not that I can detect...
Only DX stations heard & worked here were "VP2M" & PJ5". Nothing from overseas
at all. And the furthest west that I could get was Colorado! Not a single
California, Oregon, or Washington State station to be had anywhere. I wonder if
the west coast has conversely noticed a shortage of 1's, 2's, & 3's...?
Still, I've made 283 QSOs so far, basically just holding down a frequency, &
doing a wee bit of S & P'ing. We'll see what to-night brings...
Good luck, & my vy
