Our 160 station was on 160 and 15 and both bands had receiving problems.
Additionally, we don't think our US Beverage was working very well. West of
the Mississippi, we had major problems. To our European friends, we had no
Eu rx antenna. To our JA friends, I was there Friday starting at 1000z and
PM me at k1qx at arrl dot net with reports or complaints of about how deaf we
We know it is a problem and we want to get some help figuring out what we
