Had gum surgery on Friday and was tired but managed to get on the air QRP for a few hours Saturdaybut could not work many stations from my S4 noise condo Inv. L with a poor radial system. Enjoyed working KA1J who was also QRP and a nice surprise was C6AGU who briefly was ~S8
calling CQ with no takers and responded on the first call and believe it was "spotlighting" , an effect
discussed before on this list. PJ2T, KV4FZ, KP4J, and a 4V Haiti station were weak and could not hear my calls.
N0NI in IA was the furthest station west and must have great receiving antennas.
Thanks to all who picked my 5 watt signal out of the din !

Thanks for the report, Eric. Other than our QSO, the propagation gods
were not smiling -- I was shut out last night east of AR, where WD5R
Thanks to AA4V tried to hear me, but didn't.
