Thanks for the help guys. I've also found that 40m seems to be open more then 20m, day and night....at least in NJ it seems that way.
My code copy is so slow that 40m seems to be the best choice right now. I'm able to tune out the big oversea's radio's with the IF shift, and thats a plus.
I think i'd have more luck finding someone on 40 that would tolerate my poor cw skills at the moment
Thx again guys, hope to hear ya on the air.
