Well . . . . . technically there was a 100% improvement in participation over last week.
I had very rough QSO with Barry - K9NRW in IL. It took me 2 tries just to get his call.
Unfortunately he evaporated before much else could be exchanged.
Better luck with Paul - WA9PWP in cheeseland. He was 229 through the QRN and QSB but copyable.
Sorry if I couldn't copy any others.
Hope conditions improve soon.
