The half dozen of us in central Illinois did not fare so well. Rain
throughout the area made it difficult to hear, but we were glad they
were on during our opening. At one point the wind was louder than the
amplifier fan! There was a bit of a peak, with fading towards their
sunrise. I don’t believe anyone got through, so we will be on again
this evening.

 We are looking for a shot at XR0ZRC, 3B8XF, and 5X3C. It’s good to
have some nice DX to chase.

 Then my QSO did not show up in Club Log so I called and worked them a
 time 14 minutes after their SR. Shortly after they went QRT LA3BO,
 came on LB Chat and said the 160m logging computer was "not on line
at the
 moment" so not able to do real time reporting. As a result none of
 night's 160m QSO show up in Club Log. Anyway, a big step forward for

 The 7P8 operation was very active up to (and a bit beyond) their
 today. They primarily worked Europe - but eventually called for only
 Not a lot of guys made it into the log, but a few did. They peaked up
 around 0400Z here, but then slowly faded up to their sunrise.
Sometimes we
 get a very distinct sunrise peak, but that perhaps happens more in
the dead
 of winter here.

 I believe this operation will be on the air a while longer. They were
 1824 listening up.

 I had gotten on the rig to support the Wednesday night activity
effort, but
 all of the activity was focused on this one station. I did hear and
 and CT calling in the pileup, so the band was open to Europe.
