In NJ both 40m and 80m conditions were good. I was (or so I thought) ready to go for a three-bagger by QNIing the late 40m net. I heard Terry promptly, though rather weaker than during the early 40m net. I called but got no response. Terry then went QRT. Fair enough, for he'd been working overtime running 40m as well as 80m.
I then discovered that I had failed to switch the antenna tuner back to 40m from 80m, so my third QNI never materialized.
P.S. Temperature here was 10 dgrees warmer than Terry's 49F.

Subject: [4sqrp] 80 and 40M CW Nets
It was a good night on both 40 and 80 last night. The bands seem to be improving
for the Winter.
Wayne was unavailable so I called the 40M net, and was glad I did . We had 7
checkins on the early 40M net and interestingly, none on the second net at
8:30. The band was long long at 7:30 so that wasn't too suprising.
I was really pleased that 80 was in such good shape, we had 10 checkins.
Special thanks to first timer W0CC.
Thanks to all and hope to cu net week, making it in were:
