Boy, Saturday evening and Sunday morning was bad! The K index hit 5 and thought
my coax had been cut. It seemed forever before the European DX could be heard
and worked. 
Used a Software defined radio this year (SDR-1000) and it was awesome! In fact,
for all intensive purposes went to SO1R with it rather than SO2R with the MK-V.
Switched my big linear and highest antennas (if 60 feet can be considered high)
to the SDR. After using the SDR the other radios seem deficient. They being the
MK-V Field and IC-781.
Thanks for all the Q's, and if I seemed close to any other stations please
forgive me since this is the first time ever that I had no QRM from stations on
either side of me. Only when looking at the display could see many 40 and 60
over 9 signals on each side, but never heard them while digging out the weak
and watery Eu's.
Wished I could have sat in the chair longer , but had other "Honey do's". Plus
my age of 77!
See you all next year and hope the sun shines a little brighter(more sun spots)
on all of us.
