	S9+20dB noise levels (power lines - I'm sure) across 80-15 made it
pretty difficult to work anybody. We had a tree fall into the High
Lines, up the block, earlier in the week and I think the poles closer to
home got jerked around and need some work. I've called in the local
utilities so I hope they are helpful. To actually get on the air, I had
to hang my ANC-4 noise canceler ( a very useful device) sense antenna
from a nail at the bottom of the pole. Doing this, I was able to kill a
lot of the noise but the canceler required constant tweaking as I moved
around the bands. Thanks to everybody who waited through all the fill
requests. Looking forward to a "quieter" times.
