Topband: propagation during the Stew Perry test

>From California, condx seemed to be excellent;
there was just a dearth of activity. The
noise level was very low, and I had no trouble
hearing KH6AT when he came back to my CQ, even though
I was listening on the East beverage.
All the KH6's were armchair copy on the West beverage.
I only worked a handful of JA's, but they
were mostly armchair copy, and came right
back on the first call. East coast stations
were a little easier to copy than during
the ARRL. W8JI was positively booming in
when he called me after his sunrise.
KV4FZ (is this Herb's call again?) had a nice
signal for an easy 12 pointer. No other DX was heard.
