First 1 1/2 hours were lost waiting for a serious thunderstorm to pass through. 
The QRN level for the next two hours allowed only S&P of loud guys - mostly W/VE
types.  Finally the noise dissipated enough on the high bands to allow for
CQing.  Low bands were noisy but signals on 40 made that band manageable. 
80/160 were a tough slog for anything resembling DX.

Nice to have a quiet 20m stay open all night.  It allowed for a brain refresh
every now and then after fighting the QRN on the lower bands.

Worked two of the Russian "WRTC warm-up" stations, both on 20.  YR0HQ called in
on both 10 and 15 while I was beaming north/northwest.  Switching to NE antenna
made the signal go away.  Some weird polar E-skip thing??  Who knows...  After
working W1AW/KL7 on 10m I was hoping for the "ARRL" sweep but not even a trace
of signal heard from Rich's FB station through all the noise on Topband.

Thanks for the QSOs!

And, as always, mega-thanks to John and Jean!!

73, Mike K9NW
