40 meters is packed very tight due to the contest and VA QSO Party. FYI. I'll try to get on a bit earlier to "own" the frequency.

Ok. 12 minutes before the net. I'm on 14.261. **PAL.

I hear you on 20m, Gyprat.  Not great, but I hear you in a QSO, right now. Tried to answer your CQ but you didn't hear me.

I tried to call you gyprat but so far no good.

I thought I heard someone, but was still in QSO with Gyprat.  Would have been a tough QSO, though, as my noise level is pretty high.

Losing everyone now.....just garbled voices down in the noise.


This may be the first time I dug the microphone out of the closet in a year or more.

S6 noise level with no preamps here. I think I'll have better luck on 40 meters later.

Also only hearing a few faint voices through S8 noise on 20. Haven't heard anyone strong enough to carry on a QSO with. Maybe we'll have better luck on 40 later.

Heard a sliver of a qso on 14.261, was fine (S5) while it lasted.

I contacted net control just fine, S9 both ways.  But I couldn't hear even a single other station on frequency.

I was the ***UY.

Hung around for fifteen minutes and only heard one station in Colorado. Had a nice copy on him.

I called many times from Gulf Coast.

Will try on the next hour on 7.213

I had you 59 here in Virginia, I was keyed up to see if you could relay.

Storms moving this way.  Should be here in an hour or so. Probably not going to be on 40m, but then I doubt anyone would hear me anyway (10w & random wire).

I can barely hear someone on 14.261 which is odd, I just heard a guy from PR 25 min ago.

20 meters isn't working for me tonight. I'm still learning this new radio and this has given me a chance to try different settings. Noise level is just to high.

I saw a big peak on my scope. There is a QSO happening in Spanish on 14.280 and I can here both sides. I don't know where they are. I don't speak Spanish. Maybe 20 meters is really long this evening.

I think it is past 20 Meters bed time here.  Will try the 40 Meter net at 8:00

You were coming in great! Too bad you had too much noise. Maybe we can try CW some day?

Someone on 7.210 is really wide and powerful. Other than that 40m is in pretty good shape right now. I hope it holds till after 8:00.
