Hello Josh !
I am very glad that we can make QSO on top band. The band was fantastic open for west coast.
Sorry I get QRM from K7CA because he call cq cq about 1 Khz down as me and many EU stns calling him with big QRO QRM.
When very weak stations call me than I not like use filters. Many times I see your call in the cluster.
When you call me in pile up I was sure that you are but at early morning I forgot your original call sign HI !
Your signal was 579 in the clear !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today morning west coast : WA7FKV, N7XM, W6JRY, K6KM , W7UT, KC7V, W9XQ/ND. About 15 east coast.
