Hi John,

I first tried to send my answer direct to your e-mail address but it has been rejected.
I answer you via the reflector, sorry for the bandwidth...

Well thanks for your patience and thanks for activating PJ4.
It was a new one for me and was one the highs on that evening.
Your signals were good with a loud 59+10dB from 13.00z to 16.30z when I left the shack because the band (it was 15 meters) was closing.

If you need a sked drop me an e-mail. However I will be quite busy working in april. May is much more quiet.
