> Last night I turned the radio on around 0330z. The band was in
> generally poor shape to Europe then. Most Europeans were better
> on either my 43 or 86 degree Beverages (rather than the more common
> [longer] 30 degree one). I had some frustrating times calling
> stations around the noise level (eg US5IRW, OF3JF, etc). OF3JF was
> just above the noise level around 0430. By the time that the east
> coast callers were done, he was just BELOW the noise level--time
> for a break...
> Things had changed by 0530 when I listened again. After that the
> 30 degree Beverage was better and the Soviet area stations were at
> their strongest level of the year here. EU6DX had an excellent signal.
> LY2BR was still strong after his 0642 sunrise. UX0UN, UA1KT and RU1AO
> were also worked. After that the EU path seemed to produce some up/
> some down stations compared to normal levels...
