We had those conditions Friday night. Talking with K5NA, both of us cut the 
operation short at that time. It was impossible to hear anything but very 
loud signals. Richard said the conditions early Friday were tolerable until 
propagation opened up between here and a storm system to the SE of here in 
Austin. By Saturday morning early, things were much better and stayed good 
the rest of the weekend.
