I was on 3730 calling at 9am. Never heard you Johnny but I picked up K0HGP again, and then Rex came in strong a bit later. I’m vertical.
A few guys on horizontal wires were not having any luck around here.
I did work Larry AB0AH though !

That didn't work too well?
I heard sigs on 3875 about 8:30 and by 9:30 they were gone.
Bert and I are about 40 miles apart and you could just hear something on 3.730, not enough to copy.
We can try again late this evening, signals might be better?
Say around 8:00 pm CDST?
I am in New England and it seems that as the morning goes on, the signals get weaker and the noise gets louder.
Don’ know but...... I think I might do better if we try QRP AM in the PM.
Probably the 3.730 - 3.740 region would be a good area to try.
What do you all, (especially near me!) think would be a good time?
Got a barefoot Nouveau 75A running off 13.8v to an end fed half wave to a bush to a tree, not exactly straight to a couple of not too tall trees. Probably about 30G stranded wire picked up from a ham fest.
I use WebSDR on line as a sort of pan adapter to spot AM carriers but the nearest station they have that I can listen to/watch is in Pennsylvania. Earlier this morning I could see my carrier really faintly (but hear nothing) and now at 9am can see nothing at all there, coming from my station.
