     I agree with John (WB2K) about the propagation.  I worked VE8 one year on
40 cw and the station was loud.  However, I remember the year N7DF went up 
there with a tower, tribander, and amplifier.  I also worked him, but I had to
ask him for 4 or 5 repeats, while he copied all my info on the first shot (I
was running 100 watts).  The most embarassing thing about it was that I was
calling CQ right on top of his CQ frequency for several minutes before I heard
him at all.  Know what?  I wasn't the only one not hearing him, because no one
had come back to either him or me!
     Oh yes, minor details - N7DF's qso was on either 15 or 20, don't remember
