24 hours of propagation on both 20 and 40 this weekend but
our usual US openings were probably cut short because of the
loud DX stations that call us after every CQ thinking we are in
the US. Then we had the fellow in the US tell us "DX only" when 
we called him. But it was all good. Caught the perfect topband 
East coast sunrise this trip for a FB hour or so and called a lot 
of CQ's on a dead ten meter band to heat the room. 15 was poor 
for us and only produced for a short run both days. It will be the
money band in a few years. Our 80 ops did a FB job but we had
gale winds with blowing snow causing a lot of snow QRN at times 
the first night. Lots of down time to eat/sleep while we waited for
the bands to transition from Europe to US each day/night cycle.
You know we are doing good and working the bands out when the 
calls start showing up with portable 4. This shows us we are getting
down to the retired guys in Fla with their bumper mounted whips on 
the RV shooting skip to Alaska. Crew reports that had a great time 
playing radio for the weekend. I sure did, fun contest. 73 Rich KL7RA
