Tonight was another of those times that 
make 160 the awesome band it is. 5X3C was 
not easily heard tonight. If not for the 
HI-Z setup I couldn't even hear them over 
the noise level from AMTRAK. The sloper 
was unable to give a S/N that was 
workable. Even so, they were just showed 
as a ghost on the P3, but... I could hear 

DX Atlas was showing they were just 
beginning their grayline when I could 
first hear them but QSB in & out made it 
iffy all throughout the grayline itself. I 
hung in there and just after it looked 
like the sun had risen there, they heard 
my signal. For whatever reason there 
weren't any others calling them, just me. 
4:00Z and I posted it to the cluster & 
several started calling, but 5 minutes 
later they were gone from the headphones 
and the scope.

Nothing like playing the game the best you 
know how and lucking out. 

Better than fishing (but not by much):)

Good luck to us all, 73,
