You guys should post when you are going to be on air. I’d be happy to listen on 20. When I do hear stations, it’s often the intrepid QRP ops, because everyone else has abandoned 20 meters.

I am jellin....I get home from work just as 20m is closing...so it seems. Last night I couldn't even hear ARRL bulletins on 14047.5
I will keep trying. I HAVE heard some stations on my HT20...but so far no joy on a QSO.
I remain hopeful ... and the weekend is coming up

(Mia Culpa Lesson: Make sure IC pins are unbent and mate solidly with receptacle.
