No real copy on VP8STI here in central CA on TB either night. The BEST I've been able to hear on my K9AY loop has been a very few brief periods of pips and squeaks in the noise that MAY have been VP8STI, but not even enough to discern a '5NN' or anything close to legible copy. Pretty much the same both nights of VP8STI TB operation.

VP8STI had a strong signal here on 80m their first night on 80 (20 Jan) and was armchair copy for much of that evening.

 Maybe tonight...

GL to all still in the hunt.
