My first time remembering to listen for the nets :-)
Rig was a KX3 @ 5watts to a rotatable dipole on 40M and an inverted vee on 80M.
Signals for the 40M net were very weak in Louisiana.
At some point, I heard "PWP" just above the noise, so I guess that was Paul.
On 80M signals were much better.
I was able to copy most of the stations and check into the net.
