No takers today, the band is in bad shape with the A index at 47. Must have
been a CME on the sun. I hear very few signals on 40 and those are weak. This
doesnt bode well for the 80M Fox Hunt tonight either.

Next week will be better. Thanks to all who tried this morning.

Back to the bench, Winter's too valuable to waste.
I love this radio stuff !
