Hi Tom and Roger,

I decided to add my 2c as I noticed the same behavior with no GL peak for last 
over here...
I remember the great peaks during the Grey line phenomenon condx window 
years ago but not now. I tried to observing the condx during the GL window for 
few weeks on TB (thanks to Xmas time and my illness on ATB) with the similar 
as Roger reported. 
Also I tried to switch in between several RX antennas like W2PM MiniDiamond 
K9FD loop, low dipole as same as my TX antenna (loaded half sloper) and there 
was no 
difference regarding the peak at the GL time...
