>From my landlocked 4 square in somewhat frozen and snowy Alberta, Friday
was mostly what I'd call a normal evening, i.e. not very good. The bigger
stations on the east coast are workable (VY2ZM and N4PN were consistently
loud), Europe is a dream (and yes, we consider VO1/2 to be part of Europe
for this one...) and the Carribean was workable but not many of them to
pick from. I only called CQ here from almost 0800 thru 0930 and the best
mults that answered were VE9HF and KH6AT but I listened a fair bit (and
made a few Perseus recordings earlier) and gave out the multiplier to
whomever heard me.
It never ceases to amaze/confuse me that when I'm searching and calling
stations, anyone that isn't fairly solid copy will virtually NEVER hear me.
Yet when I call CQ, I get stations answering me that are so weak I'd never
even consider calling them, yet they often comment on how loud I am. They
can't all be QRP....
