I sent a QSL card your way. Good contact last night and even better tonight. I'll just sit back and listen tonight unless the pile up clears. I know a lot of guys are running barefoot and I don't want to step on them.

Can hear net control and some of the check ins on my SDR receiver from the world's worst HF operating location (first floor apartment), but everyone is way down in the noise on my FT-450.  I guess that's what happens when your antenna is inside and about 4' off the ground.    I'll see if can give it a shot some other night.

Either Gyprat turned his antenna away from me, or I'm losing the band. Still a big pile up.

I was the 3rd or 4th in, check-ins still going, lol.

Conditions turned ugly here about 10 minutes ago.

Definitely getting an amp.

47 mins of non stop check ins

This is by a wide margin, the biggest ARFCOM net I've ever heard.

WOW

I wish that Gyprat was collecting screen names. I can't believe all of these stations are arfcom members. Still, no doubt it's a record number of arfhams checking in. Plenty of loud stations on the frequency.

I was running 500W. Again, antenna is a modified 40M half square. It's basically an 80M ladder-line fed dipole but with a 40M 1/4 wave vertical element descending from each end. I use a heavy plumb bob on the end of each one to keep them hanging reasonably straight. It's up at about 65ft. 50ft is a practical minimum because the vertical elements are 34 feet long.
