Move about 16 degrees farther North and then see what 40 meters sounds like :)

I thought the bands sounded horrible. The fishing last weekend, however, was excellent.

Sounds like you worked a bunch of good stuff and had a lot of fun!

I'm somewhat surprised at the comments about poor conditions during CQWW/SSB. On the higher bands, sure, but what can one expect. But I thought 40M was extremely good. Europe pounded in of course, but there were signals from Africa, the Middle East, Asia, the Pacific, etc. Even heard Zone 26 (HS0AC), but never QSX up! And Asia/Pacific kept coming in until 9.30am local here. The one path missing from W5 was the 40M long path SW to central Asia and eastern Europe just after our dawn. Our local 160M gurus tell me that things were pretty good there too. BTW, if you're copying this James - 9V1YC was a good signal into Texas on 40M Sunday afternoon (your dawn) long path from the SE.
