Apparently, we are shitting where other people are trying eat.

This might be a new tuning frequency.

I was able to get one station to QSY.  He claimed he heard someone come back on sideband (me apparently) and apologized.  I don't know about the others.

Interesting, not hearing that.

It was cool hearing a Washington state station check in.

They are actually starting to bleed in now!

They're pretty strong here.

At least I was able to check in on 40 this time.  Only 5/2, but I'll take it!

Everyone needs to get their Extra so we can do this farther down the band where it is less busy.

This sucks. Hope it's temporary. Wish you were local. I'd let you borrow my TS520.

BTW, I can get back to simulcasting the net on our Zello channel if anyone is interested. You can also check in before the net starts, by proxy, if you want.

Let's try to find an 80m frequency not owned by any group today. It seems to be packed tight every night, in the General portion of the band.
Do we need to get an FCC permission to own an 80m frequency? I didn't know that 80/75m band had an "AM only" segment.

Tell them, "Hey! I have a bill of sale for this frequency! It came with the bridge I bought in New York a while back!"

Hey! I got the PRC 320 fired up.

If anyone needs a card from BFE give me a shout after the net.

I'm gonna be kind of weak tonight I would imagine.

So shout 'relay' when you hear someone.

Relays count as check-ins (but not as QSOs with NC.)

Got 12 check-ins (one through a relay) on 40 meters.

17 check-ins on 80 meters.

Thanks guys!

80m noise was at S2-S3 tonight. Big signals on both bands.

The whole net was simulcasted on our Zello net tonight.

Sorry! I screwed up, bumped the VFO A knob but brought it back to 285 by mistake while listening to the second receiver on 80 m at the same time. I'm still getting used to the new radio.

I found another net on 3.880, so I was talking to some new people over there.
