I heard some very short duration signals from W1 direction on 6m on
Saturday midday. Heard a W1 callsign for about 15 seconds and another
station sending "FN42" on 6m CW. They weren't in there long enough for me
to get the beam pointed their way.

Most of the opening for my area was to the west and southwest. I think
K2DRH, W9RM, K5QE and XE2X were all making their own propagation.
