I worked for about an hour and rounded up 5 contacts...all pretty good DX from FN42...begging the question, "Where was the activity from FN42?"

    2 - FN20
    2 - FN31
    1 - FM19

And all directly on a SSE path down the coast...gotta swing the beam more...also need more power so I can call CQ and get replies from off the side.

All this with a bare TS-790, home brew K1FO type beam at 90 Ft.

It seems that 432 works about as well as 144 for the path down the coast.  I can get into SNJ from southern NH just about any time on either band.
