Beautiful signal on 15 CW this morning.  Thanks for the QSO.  The confirmation for this one will put me on Honor Roll, and I did it with 400 watts and a dipole antenna.

We had a nice opening on 17 meters SSB at our sunset, long path propagation favored Florida and the a East Coast. I worked N5UD/M.



Thanks Paul. I was about to give up. Your signal was solid S5, but you had receive noise. I followed the announced freq change.

A few minutes later I made the 15 CW log. Sigs there were s5-7.
Next comes 10M. Sigs were S7 sometimes 9. I could not break pile or any possible local noise on XZ end. I called off/on for 2 hours. Really frustrating to hear a decent signal and can't get through. 10M is one of my tougher bands. My mobile vertical vs all the yagis. hihi

Well solidly in the log now.

I still might try 40M LP again.

Wow this XZ and S2 had good signals today. Worked them both on 10m for 312 and 313 and S2 on 12 for 316.
 I dont recall anytime that the signals were that strong on 10m  lp in the 19 years I been on.
 Great job and looking forward to a few more band fills.
Looks like a nice lazy weekend of playing radio.

Wow they had a good signal at 05:00Z today on 10M.
Snagged another band and am very happy.  Now it's time to give it a rest and let others get a chance.

I called CQ NA on 17 SSB at our sunrise but nothing developed. Went to 14.190 and struggled with high noise but had a strong opening to the East Coast. Normally the propagation follows the sun west across the continent, but not today. It stayed in the eastern half of the US, then poof it was gone.

What is the noise ? Interfering radio signals or the ever present power line noise ?
Sure is nice to operate from a QTH with ZERO noise.

I was checking 40M CW this evening, but appears to be a "no show".

Yes.  Here in Denver 15m, 17m, and 20m were completely dead.  Weird!  Just four days ago 9N was booming in on 15m at 0200z.

Lousy band conditions this evening here in California, as well. With 43 degree F temperatures, drizzling rain, and poor propagation, it will be a good evening to sit in my favorite chair and play my guitar. There's always tomorrow.
On a high note (you see what I did there?  Wink ) I'm very pleased to see that so many of us are making those dream contacts with XZ1J.

In the past few days 10 meter long path has been open from Vietnam to India and the path has remained open for up to 4 hours for S21 and XZ.  It certainly is a lot of fun.

OK, that's the last straw.  I will be up at sunrise for East Coast on Saturday morning for SSB, esp since the CW DX contest will be going on then.  Best chance, since I have not heard any XZ or S21 yet.
