At least in my location - I would say that things were no better last night.

N6SS in Arizona said he worked them just after 0400Z.  There was also a
report that he came back to N6MB about 10 times around 0430Z - but N6MB was
not hearing him.  The data suggests they are hearing better than getting
out - which means if you can hear them - the spotlight is shining on you
and you have a pretty good chance of making the QSO.

If it was easy - it wouldn't be as rewarding when it happens!!

Good luck to all.
