Weekly Nets

wa0itp yahoo <wa0itp@...>
 

Good nets, thanks to all who made it in.  Both bands were much better than last week. 

Did anyone else hear the pulsing static type signal on 7122 before the net this morning?  I was abt S7 and stopped 10 minutes before net.  I hear it often and wonder if its local to my QTH or more widespread.  It pulses at abt once per second. 

Nice to hear everyone, thanks again es cu net week.

Here is a hint that I came up with in the '90s on� qrp-l.� Get a flashlight.� Place the
flashlight on the floor with the light beam parallel to the surface of the floor.
Move the beam around in all directions and maybe even try different positions
around the floor.

Things become more pronounced with the light reflecting of their surface
and the projected shadow.� Saved me from a lot of problems many a time.

Dust bunnies become real monsters in the light.
