	I'm near Seattle.  They were copiable for about 15 minutes around
1345 UTC on March 27 and N6TR, K7ZV and others worked them.  They did not
show up yesterday or today, at least until after the sun was up.

Guys with very good stations down here (SF Bay area) didn't hear them that
morning, very typical of Topband "spotlight" propagation.

They were not on 80 or 160 this morning (29 Mar).
